Cannot use international characters in title


At first, much thanks to Evgeny for this great Q&A project. I really love it.

My question is about using cyrillic in question title. When I'm trying to save one, I get error message below the title:

The title is too long, maximum allowed size is 255 bytes

See screenshot:

Any ideas how to correct this?

Are you sure that issue is similar to mine?

But I've tried the patch and it has not worked for me.

In a fact I have this error too on one of test-sites and still find no explanation except "html5lib bug". In my case there is 3 versions of html5lib are installed on my system. I tried to clean it and forced install of html5lib 0.90 in virtualenv with no effect.

Besides, what version of python and html5lib you use?

I use 0.95. I also tried 0.90 on virtualenv, but it doesn't help.
