Comment(by marco):

 Note that this code is run inside the shell service, which doesn't import
 gtk and hence doesn't default to UTF-8 as encoding (most of the sugar code

 >>> import os
 >>> os.path.join('a', unicode('ààà'))
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
 UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 0:
 ordinal not in  range(128)
 >>> import gtk
 >>> os.path.join('a', unicode('ààà'))

 I haven't verified if this is relevant at all given your explanation, but
 I thought I'd better mention it.
