Send mail bug needs password passed as bytearray

myMail = EmailMessage('subject', 'message', 'someemail@address.com', ['myemail@address.com'])

The error I'm getting:

  File "/Users/Elliot/.virtualenvs/allright/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/mail/message.py", line 342, in send

    return self.get_connection(fail_silently).send_messages([self])

  File "/Users/Elliot/.virtualenvs/allright/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/mail/backends/smtp.py", line 100, in send_messages

    new_conn_created = self.open()

  File "/Users/Elliot/.virtualenvs/allright/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/mail/backends/smtp.py", line 67, in open

    self.connection.login(self.username, self.password)

  File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/smtplib.py", line 607, in login

    (code, resp) = self.docmd(encode_cram_md5(resp, user, password))

  File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/smtplib.py", line 571, in encode_cram_md5

    response = user + " " + hmac.HMAC(password, challenge).hexdigest()

  File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/hmac.py", line 75, in __init__


TypeError: character mapping must return integer, None or unicode

There was solution from this ticket with the same problem. But then the fixed commit was removed here.

The settings needed to send emails now

EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.webfaction.com'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = bytearray('******', 'utf-8')

So 2 questions:

Am I missing something simple?

Is this a bug and needs a ticket?
