It should be /mailman unless you've changed DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN
in your mm_cfg.py.  (Or your lists web_page_url has been
manually set to something else.)

The cookie will be for 'site' if you used the admin password
and allow sitewide admin cookies, or 'listname+admin' if you
used the list password.
