Almost all the settings in mm_cfg.py only apply to the defaults for a list 
when created.  If a list already exists and mm_cfg.py is changed, the change 
will not propagate.  You need to change the last two options on the general 
options page for each list.  (You should be able to automate this with 
withlist, but I don't know the keys off the top of my head).
