[Mailman-Users] ran fix_url.py but admin links still show as default domain

After taking Mark's advice and running the withlist/fix_url command, I 
got list#1 on example3.com and subsequent list on example.com to work 
just fine.  Now I created a 2nd list for example3.com and I can still 
log in using example3.com/mailman/admin. Problem is that I again run 
into the issue with it linking to defaulthost.com instead of 
example3.com.  It's the same virtual host as list 1 on example3.com 
which works just fine so httpd.conf is setup fine, and mm_cfg.py is also 
set for the same virtual host.  I have also run bin/mailmanctl and for 
the sake of argument restarted apache to no avail.  Anyone have any 
thoughts on what step am I missing? I would like to say I did everything 
I should have done (and learned to do yesterday in setting up list 1 
<g>) .
