FAQ
Hello,

{First off thanks for a fantastic package...we've been using MM for
several years on bioperl.org}

I've got one list out of many on our MM server that has not processed a
new email since May 1st. The messages are apparently all in the shunt/
dir and running bin/unshunt just repeats the same traceback errors.

Tried googling, tried the archives and tried upgrading from 2.1 to 2.1.2
but I'm still having a serious problem with the bioperl-l at bioperl.org
mailing list. It also happens to be our biggest and most active list so
I'm starting to get a bit stressed.

Google searching on "shunt errors" and "TypeError: iterable argument
required" brought me to a page where it was suggested that there was a
unicode parsing bug that triggers when subscribers have 8-bit encoded chars.

I did find one subscriber who had funky chars in his "name" field and
deleted it via the web admin. Running "list_list" verified that the
subscriber list looks OK otherwise.

Sent a test message to the list and it still got shunted with a
traceback error message.

The message.pck file is attached. I'll happily supply the .db file if it
would be useful.

The actual traceback is this:
May 06 16:31:39 2003 (14914) Uncaught runner exception: iterable argument required
May 06 16:31:39 2003 (14914) Traceback (most recent call last):

Any advice or pointers would be deeply appreciated.
