The ability to edit web_page_url via the web admin GUI for a list was 
removed in MM 2.1.2; reason was that if admin's got it wrong it screwed the 
list's web admin GUI and it could only be fixed from the command line, 
hence dangerous, hence removed.

With MM 2.1.x you can modify web_page_url using the $prefix/bin/withlist 
script fix_url.py

Just run the $prefix/bin/fix_url.py and it should print its usage.
