Assuming you're not getting errors in your log files, it's probably
a cookie problem.  In fact, that's strongly implied by the fact that
creating a new list with the same name.  Does the problem go away if you
exit the browser and start it up again?  (This only works with the most
recent beta, which I notice you're running, because the new beta makes
the cookie a "this session only" cookie).  There were a *lot* of cookie
maintenance changes fairly recently.  Make sure your workstation, and
the server, have their clocks in sync; you should be running NTP on your
server; since you're also at VT, I know that we have 2 local ntp servers
you can easily chime off of, (since I run one :-)).
