I get tracebacks when completing on filenames with non-ascii characters in the %run command. I have traced it to shlex_split that converts its argument to string on python 2.x due to a bug in the underlying shlex.split for unicode arguments. However it should convert the result back to unicode after the call.

We have a unicode-safe version of shlex.split() in IPython/utils/ as arg_split().

My latest push to #1116 remove the old shlex_split and calls arg_split instead. Added some tests for magic_run_completer.

Min RK Merge shlex PRs (#1130, #1116)
* arg_split now takes optional strict flag, to ignore ValueErrors in
  shlex parsing
* %timeit uses strict=False, to avoid errors parsing python code
* %run completer uses arg_split(strict=False) for its unicode behavior, instead
  of custom shlex derivative, which is now redundant.
