Ah, OK - thanks Richard, this seems to work OK. It's a bit frustrating &
long-winded to have to add this for every list but hey.

There's reference to 'web_page_url' in the fix_url.py script and
outputted config (config_list -o). This sounds exactly what I'd like to
edit! Yet it isn't configurable directly. Is there some architectural
reason why not?

This script bills itself to "set the web_page_url and host_name
attributes of the list to the values found."

But web_page_url is not a configurable variable?! Insofar as I even
tried with config_list -i and it complained that web_page_url wasn't

Thanks for your help,
Paul (eyes starting to droop & glaze over at this point :-)
