I know why (now, that you report the problem).

  '...' introduces a non unicode string in which "\u" is not recognized.
  "\u" is only recognized in unicode strings.
  They are introduced by "u'...'".

Thus, instead of "unicode('\u2013').encode('utf-8')", I should
have written "u'\u2013'.encode('utf-8')".
