Unfortunately, the admin for this particular list was pretty upset and in a hurry so as a quick fix I extracted the membership listing (list_members) and rebuilt the list.

Thanks for the information.  I will keep it on file in case this issue reoccurs on another list.

It looks like you have a subscriber address with a non-ascii character.
