The list-owner has sent me a follow-up email, which I've been able to 

When logging into a list named trawler-world-list-help (a mm2.1 list) 
everything works - *unless* there's already a mm2.0 cookie for the list 
trawler-world-list. In my browser, I see one cookie for 
"trawler-world-list:admin" (mm2.0) and a second for 
"trawler-world-list-help+admin" (mm2.1).

I'm trying to find this in the cookie parsing stuff in 
Mailman/SecurityManager.py, but python is not my first language. :)
