[Mailman-Users] Error when list Moderator deals with pending requests

Following up on my own post, I think I found the problem. One of the
subscribers that was added to one of our moderated lists had an email
address that wasn't legitimate. The domain name the person submitted was
"@domain.s" when it should have been "@domain.us" there (having just one
character there certainly won't work!) - the moderator didn't catch it.
After I unsubscribed that address from the list, I haven't seen the bug
appear again so far.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Error when list Moderator deals with pending

Hi All-


We're running Mailman 2.1.12 on a Ubuntu server, version 9.0.4. We've run
into an issue when a list moderator takes care of pending requests.what
happens is when the moderator takes an action for the request and hits the
Submit Data button, it throws the "we hit a bug" message. I looked through
the error logs and found this entry which I've copied and pasted below. I'm
the owner for all of our lists and I don't encounter this when I take care
of the pending requests, it only happens to the moderators. Can anyone give
me some insight as to what may be going on?
