#831 Edit Options for unsubbed user results in backtrace

2.1 (stable)
Web/CGI (248)

I was trying to test out a new installation of mailman.
I tried to subscribe by the web site, and it sent me a
response. I tried responding by email and
simultaneously put my email in the "unsubscribe or edit
options" box and clicked the button.

When I clicked the button I received the following message:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.4

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

If you would like to help us identify the problem,
please email a copy of this page to the webmaster for
this site with a description of what happened. Thanks!
