Description Edward Sheldrake 2012-07-26 12:08:06 UTC
This is a new issue with pyxdg 0.21:

python -c 'import xdg.Menu; xdg.Menu.parse();'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/xdg/Menu.py", line 574, in parse
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/xdg/Menu.py", line 937, in sort
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/xdg/Menu.py", line 964, in sort
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/xdg/Menu.py", line 490, in __lt__
    return self._key() < other
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/xdg/Menu.py", line 483, in _key
    return locale.strxfrm(self.DesktopEntry.getName())
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u2026' in position 16: ordinal not in range(128)

U+2026 is from gnome-search-tool.desktop which contains a … character instead of ... (three dots):
Name[en_GB]=Search for Files…
