I return the list via a python function:

import string
s = str(s_arg)

s = s.replace('[','')
s = s.replace(']','')
s = s.replace('\'','')
s = s.replace('"','')
ret = s.split(',')
return ret

s_arg needs to look like "['test','test_str','yes']"

the str() is primarily to get around an attribute error

any leads as to why it might be failing...
I did check it out on the interpreter and it returns a list.
