Hi Brad,

I'm using MailMan 2.0.11 as default for Debian Woody.

I have now tracked down the thing to erroneus session cookies. 
MailMan sets all cookies to an expiration date of january, 1, 1970. 

I have modified the apache configuration for a default value of 60 
minutes, but the MailMan cookie keeps the wrong expiration date.

I have now looked at www.backports.org, and there is a newer version 
available: 2.1.4. Should this cure my problems?

Thank you very much!
