Actually, here's another one of my favorite examples:

>>> import struct
>>> struct.pack("s","\xf1")

Not only does this not encode the correct value, it doesn't even encode the entire UTF-8 encoding (just the first byte of it).   Like I said, pity the poor bastard who puts something that in their code and they spend the whole day trying figure out where in the hell '\xf1' magically got turned into '\xc3'.
