When you go to the roster from the listinfo/<listname> page, it goes to
the roster/<listname> URL. If you then go somewhere else and then back
to that URL, I'd expect it to work. Also, if I go to a list admin
page, logging in along the way, and then just change "admin" in the
address bar to "roster" and go there, it works all the time.
