What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. ldap or active directory authentication configured on server
2. a user has modified his password and it contains one or several accent
3. try to login with this username

What is the expected output?
people should be authentified

What do you see instead?
no exception catched and notified to user

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Linux OS with chromium or firefox

fix is to call simple_bind_s with "password.encode('utf-8')" instead of "password"

Can we force encode('utf-8') for ldap or should there be an encoding system option in admin section ?
