to fix the described error please modify the following function in

-----------------8<---------------[cut here]
#on UTF8 branch, split and strip must be unicode-safe!
def split(text, delim=None):
if type(text) is str: text = text.decode('utf8')
if type(delim) is str: delim = delim.decode('utf8')
# This fixes &nbsp; issue and multiple linebraks on splitted page part
if delim is None and text == u'\xa0':
delim = ' '
return [uword.encode('utf8') for uword in text.split(delim)]
-----------------8<---------------[cut here]
