Actually, I figured out the problem, which was that I was using the mail
URL for the list in fix_url rather than Mailman's Web host URL.  I reran
fix_url and reset the mail host in the interface and all seems well.

It wasn't clear from the UPGRADING readme that that step was necessary.
bin/update seems like it will update Mailman itself (which may not be
desirable).  Is it necessary for moving mailing lists?  What does it do
for 2.0-2.1 upgrades?
