I had to clear  some of my cookies for the site in  question, but after that
it worked fine. Thanks.

I also  had to get  back to you  as to whether  a mailman upgrade  broke the
exisiting crypted admin passwords.
While the upgrade  of one my of my  sites to mm 2.1a3 seemed  to have broken
that,  I just  checked that  the upgrade  of another  site I  just completed
didn't cause problems and the old passwords worked.
