It appears from the above information that you have attempted to get a
roster of list members from the listinfo page for the div_d-g list,
and you have entered the listname div_d-g and maybe the list password
in the e-mail and password fields.

You also have a login cookie for the div_a-c list maybe because you
just visited that roster.

I've seen this problem in Mailman 2.1.4 in similar contexts and it may
or may not occur in more recent versions, but Mailman seems to get
confused if there is a cookie that is not applicable to the current
request and errors like this occur.

I would suggest you either go to an admin page for the div_a-c list and
explicitly logout before trying to get the div_d-g roster or use the
list admin's e-mail address and password instead of the list name and
list password.
