[Mailman-Users] Bug reporting problem...

I tried to report a bug in Mailman 2.1.1 but failed... after creating a 
sourceforge-account I visited
It states that I'm logged in in the upper right corner by the text 
"welcomes banan (Logout)". When I click on "Reporting" I get:
"Error: Permission: User Not Found".

So what to do?

Anyway, the bug is that when using Swedish language instead of English in 
the administrative interface we have three more characters to take care of 
(e g 'a' and 'o' with dots over). 

The problem occours when the user click a button that contains these 
characters, e g the button (translated to english) "Send me my password" 
Then the user get among all the error messages:
    "UnicodeError: ASCII decoding error: ordinal not in range(128)"
We are using Python 2.2.2 and I guess the problem is with the Swedish 
characters and I guess/hope this is easy to solve. Right now the user 
cannot retrieve their password :-(

The full message:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.1

We're sorry, we hit a bug!
