ValueError: unpack list of wrong size



I was happily anacondaing away, editing my comps file and reinstalling on my 
test machine and then I got the above error. I happen to have a recent 
archive of this list so it only took a couple of seconds to grep it and find 
it's never been reported before.

No idea of what the means, can't even find where it's issue.


Here's the stack trace:
Traceback (innermost last):

Local variables in innermost frame:
filename: http://cc.computerdatasafe.com.au/RedHat/7.3u/dist/RedHat/base/comps
expression: None
trash:
hidden: 0
connected: 1

I've got the whole dump, if anyone wants it I can put it on my webserver. 
Looks pretty useless to me;-) It's got everything you could want to know 
amount the machine, but no clue as to what in the comps file it finds 
objectionable.
