The scenario you describe indicates you may have

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/cgi-bin/'

in mm_cfg.py. Make sure that this is defined as

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'

in Defaults.py and not overridden in mm_cfg.py (or just put the latter
definition in mm_cfg.py).

If you also have problems with links on the list's admin pages, you
will need to fix the individual lists with fix_url after correcting
the configuration. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9>.
