[Mailman-Users] Virtual Domains again (on postfix)...

Using virtual domains with mailman seems to be one of the favourite
topics, but I didn't find the answer to my particular virtual domain
problem in the FAQs, Docs or Archives. Maybe I simply overlooked it
due to the huge amounts of information.

The question is: How can I force the mailman web interface of a particular
virtual host (apache) to use that same domain name for creating mailing
lists (in this case: the correct postfix virtual map)?

I want http://onedomain.tld/mailman/admin/create to create the correct
virtual maps for "onedomain.tld" and
http://anotherdomain.tld/mailman/admin/create to create the correct
virtual maps for "anotherdomain.tld.

But unfortunately, mailman always creates the postfix virtual map only

I have all the domains in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS and created one
add_virtualhost() entry for each domain, including DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST

When I browse through http://anotherdomain.tld/mailman/* which is not the
DEFAULT_URL_HOST / DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST, then the interface most often shows
the correct domainname in the footers and sometimes, seemingly out of a
sudden, it switches to the DEFAULT_* name.

What can I do about this? Did I miss something?
