Description Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2016-06-13 16:53:46 CEST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #41313 +++

When using unicode the SyslogHandler of python2.6 creates invalid syslog messages.
This bug has been fixed upstream for Python 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3 but not for 2.6.

Please include the fix into python2.6.
