That's correct. The problem is the internal encoding. You can change it
by inserting

import sys
sys.setdefaultencoding('utf-8')   # or ISO8859-1

at the top of the script. I might be that your distribution prohibits
setting this value (than the function is unknown).
For SuSE I had to edit /usr/lib/python/site.py and remove the two lines

	if hasattr(sys, "setdefaultencoding"):
	    del sys.setdefaultencoding

at the end of the file.
