> Shouldn't the surrogateescape error handler (PEP 383) prevent this?

Yes, it shoud (I just read PEP 383, I told you I didn't know anything
about encoding :-).

So basically, for the test failure, the issue is simply that the
platform's default encoding can't encode character '\xff'.

Should I simply remove the offending character from this test address?

Also, let's say I wanted to test that it can be passed and returned
properly, so I add '\0xff' to the adress passed to testBytesName:


How should I check the string returned by getsockname()?

self.assertEquals(s.getsockname(), ???)
