Hello all,

two times in the last couple days I have received the following error when trying to login to the trac website:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    result = func(*args,**kwargs)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 0-13: ordinal not in range(128)

Typically the error goes away when I try again (sometimes multiple times).

    Likely this is a symptom of ldap problems we have had in the last few days here. Please let me know whenever you see this (just ping the ticket). I'll leave it open for now.
