This problem has been resolved after an off list conversation.

The solution was to run fix_url.py against the problem list. It appears
that the problem list was somehow originally created with a
web_page_url attribute like 'http://domain1.com/mailman/' instead of
'http://www.domain1.com/mailman/'. fix_url.py corrected that.
