Description

I tried to upload a layer to PostGIS in the DB Manager and got the following error:

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 5: ordinal not in range(128) 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/qgis/python/plugins/db_manager/dlg_import_vector.py", line 375, in accept
    self.db.connector.createSpatialIndex((schema, table), geom)

    idx_name = self.quoteId(u"sidx_%s_%s" % (tablename, geom_column))

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 5: ordinal not in range(128)

Python version: 2.7.14 (default, Sep 20 2017, 01:25:59) [GCC 7.2.0] 
QGIS version: 2.18.13 Las Palmas, exported

To reproduce:

Try to add a layer to PostGIS via DB Manager where the "Table" name has a non-ascii character (like "ä") and tick the "Create spatial index" option.
