As per the title, I'm trying to setup a toolshed for our local use. After 
creating a repo, I try to upload the initial file only to get:

    TypeError: array item must be char

Which seems to happen repeatedly, i.e. it's not a passing error.

While I'm here, a perhaps obvious question: where or how does the main Galaxy 
instance get the list of toolsheds to display? The main and test sheds are 
hardcoded in, I guess, but how does it pick up the local - simply by virtue of 
the fact that it is local?
