[Mailman-Users] sync_members problem

I found the problem with my data by temporarily adding a
print_("Checking:" ... line to sync_members at around line 209:
for name, addr in filemembers:
print _('Checking: %(addr)1s')
print _('Invalid: %(addr)1s')
invalid = 1
print _('You must fix the preceding invalid addresses first.')
There was a comma in one of the email addresses, like this:
user at domain,.edu.
So I solved my data problem, but the question remains as to why
add_members didn't fail in the same place.
