The thing that actually needs to be changed is the web_page_url
attribute of the lists.

You need to change DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN in mm_cfg.py only. I assume the
other stuff you say you did is because this didn't appear to work, but
it wasn't decessary because it does work. The problem is, that only
affects new lists, not existing ones. You didn't do step 3 of
for existing lists.

Note that in addition to the

 $prefix/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url listname

command shown in the FAQ, you can also do

 $prefix/bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url

to change all lists at once. I just tried to add this to the FAQ, but
there is an ongoing intermittent permissions problem that's preventing
me from doing this at the moment.
