Yes, the log helps.

This ...

... is (I believe) a known error in Python.

I have improved our code to work around this problem.

If you feel adventurous you can go find the file


on your system and search for

        def fmt_msg(self, aMsg):

Then change the lines inside that function to look like this:

        def fmt_msg(self, aMsg):
                        tmp = u"%s:%d: %s" % (self.filename, self.lineno-1, 
                        tmp = tmp.replace(u'\r', u'')
                        #tmp = string.replace("%s:%d: %s" % (self.filename, 
self.lineno-1, aMsg), '\r', '')
                        tmp = tmp.replace(u'\n', u'')
                except UnicodeDecodeError:
                        tmp = u"%s:%d: <cannot unicode(msg), printing on 
console>" % (self.filename, self.lineno-1)
                                print aMsg
                        except: pass
                return tmp

After that the actual error will be shown on the console
where you started gm-bootstrap_server and you could report
that to us (here on this list).

Or you can wait for 0.7.6 which will contain the above lines
-- but it will take up to two weeks.
