IIRC, in most unibyte encodings 0xA0 is NO-BREAK SPACE.  You wouldn't
be able to see that.

If you have shell access to the Mailman installation,

bin/with_list savo

for i in m.getMembers():
    # This loop should break at the problem member
        print i

will print any bogus members.  (My Mailman is a little rusty, but it
should be something like that.  The comments in the with_list script
will tell you what variable holds the list config, but I'm pretty sure
it's "m".)
