I'm sure that I'm doing something wrong in my use of foolscap, but maybe it shouldn't do this:

Do you remember how you triggered this? It looks like you created a Failure around something that wasn't an Exception, like Failure("bare string") or Failure(42). Twisted should have stringified anything else. I can't seem to create a Failure like this on my own: the Failure constructor emits a warning and wraps my value with a DefaultException when I try to use a bare string or a number.

We could always stringify the values locally, but it'd be nice to get a test case for this in place. Let me know if you can remember how to reproduce it.
