Just glancing at the traceback makes me think we may be able to make
this one go away. I invite people to edit the method __getitem__ on
line 137 of components.py in Grok and catch this error. Instead, raise
some nicer error message (could still be a TypeError or a ValueError
or something, I'm not sure what triggers this failure).

Volunteers? You need to also add a test case for this that triggers
this error and sees whether we get the expected error message.
