Hi all,

I am new on this mailinglist. Looked at the FAQ and the discussions so far,
but didn't seem to find anything about it. So I'll just ask:

There are several ways to get a bugreport from Mailman
on Debian Linux testing.

The easiest is going to listinfo/<listname>. Fill in a
non-existent e-mail address in the last field
(unsubscribe) like: alsjdf at hx.nx, and this is the reply:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.4

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

If you would like to help us identify the problem,
please email a copy of this page to the webmaster for
this site with a description of what happened. Thanks!

line 105, in AuthContextInfo
secret = self.getMemberPassword(user)
line 102, in getMemberPassword
raise Errors.NotAMemberError, member
NotAMemberError: alsjdf at hx.nx

There are more ways to get these pages:

When using discard_these_nonmembers with non-existent
e-mail addresses, the same error page is presented. 

Are these bugs already known / solved, or are there
workarounds for them?
