What is the name of this cookie? It should be 'LISTNAME+admin'. The
data is of the correct form (110 hex digits). For more info, see the
comments at the beginning of Mailman/SecurityManager.py. I think it is
highly unlikely that the cookie is set with invalid data. If there is
any problem with the cookie, it would be that it isn't accepted or
returned by the browser or that it is blocked somehow, not that the
data would be wrong.

I agree that if you have the same problem from the local side if the
firewall, then the firewall probably isn't involved.
