	Yes, the first checkbox is present, but unchecked.

	Sorry, what i meant was that what the membership page
shows is:
basanez at ioc.upc.es "luis
not that this was the string the admin entered, because the
actual string introduced by the admin was:
basanez at ioc.upc.es "luis basañez"

	Notice the "ñ" char in the string introduced... The ascii
code of the "ñ" is decimal 241.

	I have been able to reproduce the error so i have now two
lists with this problem...

	Thanks for your help.
