Yes, it was

This gave me the solution. The action url was referring to http://... 
but I had apache configured to redirect http to https using

     Redirect 301 / https://bla

Mailman of course didn't know this so it didn't use https://

First I fixed it by turning off the Redirect, and then I re-enabled 
Redirect and changed mm_cfg.py's setting of DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN. I had 
to run this command for it to take effect:

    /usr/lib/mailman/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url

It seems to be working fine now.

Thanks very much for the help!
