Just discovered another issue... We now crash when adding permissions/acis with
csv:

# ipa permission-add --attrs=member --permissions=read,write --type=group foo2
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

We should report some meaningful error, otherwise users used to add permissions
with csv values would be confused.
