We have mail posted from a web form directly  to a mailing
list and it's all bouncing with bizarre errors.  Here's one:

The original message was received at Tue, 30 Nov 1999 16:40:00 +1100
from www at localhost

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post training"
    (expanded from: training+eval at netizen.com.au)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/lib/mailman/scripts/post", line 73, in ?
    mlist.Post(msg, approved=fromusenet)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 1179, in Post
    sender = msg.GetSender()
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Message.py", line 119, in GetSender
    return string.lower(mail_address)
TypeError: read-only buffer, None
554 "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post training"... unknown mailer error 1

I've checked and normal mail posted to listname+foo at bar works
fine so it's not the +eval that's problematic.  Any ideas?
