[reportlab-users] Fwd: Bug in platypus paragraph.py

Sorry -- previous mail was sent prematurely.

There's a helper class in paragraph.py :

class _SplitText(str):

The str here should surely be unicode? The whole programming logic is that
it should be a unicode object -- and it fails (of course) if the character
is outside the ascii range.

I've done limited testing an found that changing this to

 class _SplitText(unicode):
solves the problems I've been experiencing.

Reportlab open source as found in the standard Ubuntu 14.4 server
