Bug#471166: python-apt: Translated descriptions are truncated on non-ascii characters

Package: python-apt
Version: 0.7.5
Severity: normal


thanks for python-apt.  I'm trying to use it to read translated
descriptions to index them in apt-xapian-index, but I stumbled on this:

$ ipython
import locale
import apt
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_MESSAGES, "it_IT.UTF-8")
c = apt.Cache()


Out[11]: u'Acrhiviatore di file .zip\nQuesto\n'

apt-cache show zip gives instead:

 Description: Acrhiviatore di file .zip
  Questo è il programma zip di InfoZIP. Produce file che sono pienamente
  compatibili con il programma popolare PKZIP; comunque, le opzioni a
  riga di comando non sono identiche. In altre parole, il risultato
  finale è lo stesso ma i metodi differiscono. :-)
  Questa versione supporta la crittografia.
