In 3.1.2, where the docstring is unicode, the doctest of normalize works fine, as Karen said. I think she is right: without the encoding being explicitly passed to doctest, it cannot affect how the sub-interpreter used by doctest compiles the strings as code.

I am therefore closing this as invalid (or won't fix, or out-of-date). In any case, it strikes me as a feature request, and test modules, especially, should not be enhanced in bugfix releases. If one thinks of it as a bug, the bug was fixed in 3.0 but cannot be backported.
