[Mailman-Users] Mailman crash during global address change

Dear list developers,

A crash happened when a subscriber attempted to change his address with 'Apply Globaly' check box set.
His subscriptions before the crash was:

List1: old at address.com
List2: new at address.com

The crash happened the moment he attempted to confirm the change on the given web page. He was trying to change the address for List1 from old at address.com to new at address.com.

I had him do the same thing again both with and without setting the 'Apply Globally' box. When the check was set, the crash happened again. When he did not check it, the address change did happen without a crash.

How it possibly can get to this error is beyond me. His new address did not appear in List1 and his old address did not appear in List2 (I checked before I asked him to repeat).

I've detected no adverse effects from this crash, so this message is for your information only. I searched the archives for MMAlreadyAMember, but did not find anything useful.
