Is this on the http://www.example.com/mailman/roster/listname page or
somewhere else? What do you see on
http://www.example.com/mailman/admin/listname/members? What do you get
in reply to an e-mail 'who' command?

Is this 'stock' Mailman, or does this list use a custom MemberAdaptor?

Are you using a modified roster.html template?

Based the fact that part of what's there looks like tel #'s,
student/staff classification, ..., I'm guessing this list uses a
custom LDAP, MySQL, etc. MemberAdaptor and something in this
MemberAdaptor's getRegularMemberKeys(() and/or getDigestMemberKeys()
methods is returning the garbled data.
