I just hit a problem installing package_bx_python_0_7 via the Admin GUI.

Name: bx-python
Version: 0.7.1
Type: package
Status: Error
Error: Error installing tool dependency bx-python version 0.7.1:
coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

Name: galaxy-ops
Version: 1.0.0
Type: package
Status: Installed

Clicked on "Uninstall" for bx-python, told:

Uninstall tool dependencies
Name: bx-python
Version: 0.7.1
Type: package
Install directory: This dependency's installation directory does not
exist, click <b>Uninstall</b> to reset for installation.

Clicked on "Uninstall" again, seemed to work.

I went through a series of "repair repositiory" rounds on
package_bx_python_0_7 and intersect tool, and it all seems fine now.

I'm not sure what the original glitch was, but there are two clear issues here.

First, the Unicode error - perhaps previously reported e.g.

Those previous discussions suggest the database and file system were
out of sync - but clearly this unexpected None value ought to be better

Second, the over-escaped bold in the message, presumably part of:
