I see this on all platforms.  What happens is that mailman issues a cookie for
the URL you visit, even if you use a shortened version of it. 
ie if you use http://lists/mailman/.../members instead of 
http:// lists.uchicago.edu/mailman/.../members the cookie will have to be
reissued when you use the full URL, and the password prompt screen doesn't
preserve options to the members URL when you're authenticated.
