That fixes it, although I'm not sure why this should count as a virtual
host.  My system's hostname is bostoncoop.net, and even when trying to
create a list through <http://bostoncoop.net/mailman/create> I still got
the virtual host error.  Do you have to add_virtualhost for *every* host
that you plan on creating lists from, even when it is the canonical

If that's the case, perhaps it should be documented somewher.  If not,
maybe mailman isn't properly detecting what is the "real" hostname?
