Comment(by warner):

 I think the problem is that {{{PipelineError}}} is not str-able (it
 overrides {{{__init__}}} and {{{__repr__}}} but not {{{__str__}}}).

 If I had to guess, I'd say that a connection was lost during the upload,
 the encoder tried to log.msg the exception instance, but it wasn't str-
 able so it blew up. I'd also guess that this has been a problem since that
 Pipeline class went into 1.5.0, but only shows up if you get an exception
 during upload.

 I'll add a test of str-ability and fix the class
 (source:src/allmydata/util/pipeline.py in case anyone's curious).
