fix_url didn't do the right thing because your settings for
DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST are not correct. You probably
have other add_virtualhost() issues as well.

If in fact, 'localhost.my.domain' is the correct DEFAULT_URL_HOST, then
you need to specify the host you want to fix_url with the --urlhost=

Or possibly the problem is with DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN.

This is also why your lists don't appear on the overview.
