[Mailman-Users] Odd problem changing admins and mods passwords

	I just changed a list from a bunch of admins to an admin and a 
bunch of moderators, by following the instructions (pretty simple 
actually). Just to be sure...:

1. Changed the site and creator passwords using shell commands
2. Logged in to list with soon to be stale admin passwd
3. Moved the mods from "administrators" to "moderators"
4. At password screen, entered new admin password
5. At password screen, entered new mod password
6. Tested that both new sets of credentials work as expected
7. Tested old (original) admin password, and to my horror, it works on 
both admin and on moderator screens!

What did I miss? 

Thanks, as always!
