os.path.walk will fail if it encounters a non-ascii directory name.
The listdir() in the previous iteration will return the directory as a unicode string, but the next iteration will fail on that same unicode string.

There is probably something wrong with the file system encoding used on Mac OS X.

No, the problem is that os.listdir() doesn't do the right thing with Unicode strings. I have a fix here but I need to rebuild and test. I also need to think about MvL's comment on patch #683592.

Closing this, the discussion now takes place in #683592.
