Ahh.. nope. I knew that changes there wouldn't override the values set
for lists, but I thought (because of the behavior of "DEFAULT_URL") that
it wasn't necessary to rebuild the list configs in this case if the
default hadn't been specifically overridden for the list itself..

Recreating the list fixed it for me.

Ahh - so just doing
ServerAlias / /usr/local/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/
does the trick.

Thanks much.
