    What you are seeing is the effects of mailman's virtual hosting support
which is on by default.  The admin page will list all of the available
lists, whereas
the listinfo page will only list those lists that have the same value for
their base URL
as the host to which to have connected.  The base URL for a list is set on
lists general options admin page (at the bottom).
