Interesting. The multiple values were definately not being inserted into 
mysql, but i'l bet somewhere else it was whacking off the value after the 
first null.

I solved this problem with the first mv_click of my very own:

<input type=hidden name=mv_click value=Setprefs>
[set Setprefs]
$CGI->{mail_list} = join(' ',@{$CGI_array->{'mail_list'}});

...which massages mail_list into the form I want before it's saved to
