[Mailman-Users] hostname problem

I have just installed mailman on my postfix mailserver called 
white.domain.tld.  My webserver is a separate server called www.domain.tld.  
Email for the domain is of the form user at domain.tld.  I used the configure 
options --with-mailhost=domain.tld and --with-urlhost=www.domain.tld.  My 
Defaults.py has the following entries:

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'domain.tld'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.domain.tld'
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'

I don't have any entries in the mm_cfg.py file.

white.domain.tld is running apache, and I access it through www.domain.tld by 
putting the following entries in the apache config of www.domain.tld

	ProxyPass /mailman http://white.domain.tld/mailman
	ProxyPassReverse /mailman http://white.domain.tld/mailman
	ProxyPass /pipermail http://white.domain.tld/pipermail
	ProxyPassReverse /pipermail http://white.domain.tld/pipermail

Both servers live behind a nat firewall, and only the www.domain.tld name is 
publicly accessible.

Here's the problem.  The pages served up by white.domain.tld always say 
white.domain.tld at the top, and all the urls have white.domain.tld in them 
instead of www.domain.tld.  Why is it ignoring the configuration directive
