The addons system uses a function called fake_module() in
The fake_module function reads only the addon_info dict from the
module to avoid loading every addon just to display their info.

This had a bug in 2.54 (fixed in svn), where the locale of the system
was used for reading the files which gave errors with some locales,
not its forced to utf-8.
Without more info I cant tell if this is the problem.

Could you test with a recent build to see if its fixed?, Else you
could give a link to a full error log.
