Thank you! Excellent answer. You're right that it was formerly cpanel.

Just wondering, isn't it a bug that by default virtual hosts Mailman 
namespaces collide? Why should it be considered normal to require a 
patch to support virtual hosts properly? In the web pages you referred 
me to there's some griping that cpanel was slow to share the patch. Why 
no rush to adopt it?
