Hi Godefroid,

the unpatched code checks to see whether a self.Title() or  
self.Description() are unicode in which case they can be encoded. Your  
patch will force encoding even on strings, ie. double-encoding.

Regarding the procedure: changes to the CMF should be tested on CMF  
buildouts, with CMF specific tests. You should probably run the  
exportimport with pdb to see what self.Title() is returning but, yes, I  
suspect the problem you are experiencing is Plone and not CMF related.
