I'm running the Debian Stable package of GNU Mailman. Public archives work;
however private archives require endless authentication. After the first
authentication I see the table showing all the months of messages, clicking on
any entry brings up the authentication page again. This occurs with either the
master-site password or a regular list subscriber.
Cookies are being set properly.
Background: (complicated, probably related...)
The server was installed with Debian Stable around Aug 02 and has been kept
patched. In late Nov 04, we tried upgrading to Debian Testing; security issues
however, forced us to rollback to Debian Stable and restore from backups.
I had to fix several permissions immediately have the restore, but most
everything seemed to work -- the mailing lists were back up, new subscriptions
worked, moderation of postings worked, etc. However there is the
abovementioned problem with the private list archives.
