New submission from Mark Dickinson <dickinsm at gmail.com>:

Steps to reproduce:
(1) Create a new bug.
(2) Fill in title and nosy entries, leaving all other fields alone.  I used multiple (three) nosy entries, with the last nosy entry (accidentally) misspelled:  "facundo.batista" instead of "facundobatista".
(3) Hit the "Submit new entry" button.

Result: a new browser page, with the message: "A problem was encountered processing your request. The tracker maintainers have been notified of the problem."

After fixing the nosy entry and pressing "Submit new entry" again, I get a "Your request is being processed.  Please be patient." message;  after a few seconds, the submission then goes through.

See http://bugs.python.org/issue8568 for an example that produced this behavior.
