Sorry. What I was trying to say is that Mailman sets the cookie in such
a way that it will be returned only to URLs of the form
<http://mail.python.org/mailman/*>, and not for example to a URL such
as <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/*>. This is even more restrictive
than just sending to the server itself, so I would guess that Opera
should accept it in this case, but maybe that's what's broken.

Can you ask Opera to show you all the cookies it currently has? If so,
go to your options page and log in and then see if Opera has the
cookie from mail.python.org.
