[Mailman-Users] Problems with "more info" Hyperlink from List Archives Page

I have a test Mailman 2.1.9 machine, where I have created a number of
test lists since I began testing Mailman.  This is a Mailman package
I created for Ubuntu from the 2.1.9 source.  The only Debian/Ubuntu
patch I installed was one to place files in different directories.

I have 13 lists.  For each list I checked the URL chains from the


Mailman "home page", and for five of the lists I see URL problems.

I went from that Mailman "home page" to the "home page" for each list.
I then went to the archives hyperlink.
I then went to the "more information about this list" hyperlink.
And from that list "home page" I went to the "Overview of all lists"

The correct URLs are:

     good  ==>       https://lists.example.com/mailman/listinfo/good
     archives  ==>   https://lists.example.com/pipermail/good
     more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/mailman/listinfo/good
     overview  ==>   https://lists.example.com/mailman/listinfo

The five bad lists have bad hyperlinks to "more info" from the archives

more info  ==>  https://localhost.localdomain/cgi-bin/mailmanlistinfo/mailman
more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/listinfo/bad2
more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/bad3
more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/bad4
more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/bad5
more info  ==>  https://lists.example.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/bad6

Note that the Mailman list archives page lacks a "/" between "mailman"
and "listinfo".  For each of these bad lists I ran

     /usr/lib/mailman/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url $list -u lists.example.com
but there were no changes to the URLs.  It has been a number of months
since I created these lists, so I do not remember what configuration
changes I might have made while I was creating and testing these lists.

What can I do to correct the hyperlinks?  Thanks.

I have no problems (none yet reported and none that I have seen) on the
214 lists on my production Mailman 2.1.9 machine.
