+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #619699 +++
Description of problem:
During work on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=579830
I find that if we send unicode string in xmlrpc, we will get from server rhnFault
While running 'registration.add_hw_profile': caught
exceptions.UnicodeEncodeError : 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xae' in position 44: ordinal not in range(128)
This is becouse we do in backend/server/rhnSQL/driver_cx_Oracle.py
def _execute_wrapper(self, function, *p, **kw):
params = ','.join(["%s: %s" % (str(key), str(value)) for key, value \
and str on e.g. '\xae' will fail.
We should re-spin the backend errata to include fix for this.
cherrypicked to satellite.git as commit da0e561e38969c5223418a57f1ec0511668efa83
