Is there a fix coming to this Suse 9.2 python problem:

And if the automatic update installs a fix, how can it be determined
if the system is supposed
to be ok?

Or should one install a completely new version of python? Could that
somehow harm the
system? Should the old version be kept on pc just to be sure -- and how?

It is very difficult for a newbie to try to learn using Linux, Python,
UTF-8 etc, if you're never
sure whether problems with, say, UNICODE, come from one's own mistakes
or if they are
due to a system that is belly up to begin with, because of a bug.
