StdoutWrapper actually shouldn't be calling __str__ on the obj -- it 
should just pass the original object to the stdout file for writing. 
Attached is a patch that fixes this, which is more correct.

However this bug is still a problem, because we lack a 
sys.stdout.encoding value

Could this be related to the following Unicode issues already present in

#1032 - 2.2.1: "%s" % u"\xA7" -> UnicodeError

#1802339 - [221rc1] Problem printing unicode when stdout intercepted

#1032 is a somewhat related, but different problem. Already fixed in
trunk, by the way.

This works now that StdoutWrapper now works as I described and we have a 
usually accurate encoding value on sys.stdout/stderr
