This is a bug in list_admins and list_owners. list_lists shows you the
list's real_name attribute aka the pretty name, but the actual list
name is all lower case. These scripts should lower case the provided
name as does list_members. They will work if you use 'test' and
'test1' as the names.

Thanks for the report.
