Thanks for the report.  We've made a lot of improvements to our
unicode handling recently, and I think it's all OK now.  With current
trunk:

IPython 0.11.alpha1.git -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?         -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help      -> Python's own help system.
object?   -> Details about 'object', use 'object??' for extra details.

In [1]: import sys, locale

In [2]: print repr(u'áé')
u'\xe1\xe9'


Let us know again if you have any remaining problems.

Cheers,

f
