This rings a bell. I have a feeling importing pygtk can change the
Python default encoding (sys.getdefaultencoding()). That's never
normally changed, so Python 2 code can assume it's always ascii. I
guess pygtk sets the encoding from the system locale, so if it's set
to C, it will use ascii, and the problem won't appear.
