I have a somewhat similar problem.  Most of the time (but not always!), when
I ask for the public lists, there aren't any.  It says "There are no
publicly-advertised list....."  However, if I login to admin interface, then
logout and ask for the public lists, they are there.  I can't see any other
pattern to it, and I've tried naive browsers on naive machines with the same
behavior.  Tnx - John
