[PyKDE] Converting font names to python strings

One of my users is having problems with my code. It looks like it might be 
to do with converting QStrings to Python strings if they are unicode:

The code is:

         db = qt.QFontDatabase()

         # build a dict up with the list of families
         families = {}
         for i in db.families():
             families[str(i)] = True

This gives an exception:
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position
0-6: ordinal not in range(128)

I had assumed this would just work. Am I wrong? Any ideas???
