Sorry to bother the list with this.  I can't replicate the problem I
wrote about earlier.  Stop reading now unless you want to read more
about how nothing's wrong with Mailman and IE5.

Thanks for your answer.  Now that I've managed to gain access to a
WinXX box I see that it's working fine for me to & I can go back to
believing that either this user or some proxy server is at fault.  

I'd heard reports of MSIE improperly caching pages, but of the two
problems I'd had, I've fixed one (my code was at fault) and the other
(the mailman problem) is not reproducible.
