Yes. This is an open bug, and an old one. It still requires a Pronouncement
from Barry. The problem is that Mailman creates a HTMLgen Document instead
of a HeadlessDocument, for the list page. From the top of my head the fix is
to change 

    doc = Document()


    doc = HeadlessDocument()

in Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py, function listinfo_overview(). I believe Barry
is reluctant to fix it because of possible breakage (people might have made
template files with the (Headfull)Document in mind.) Barry ? :)
