If you have "VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off" in mm_cfg.py and the lists
which appear on the listinfo overview page depend on the host name in
the URL used to visit the page, this must be due to some Apple
modification. In standard GNU Mailman, VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW controls
this behavior.

Again, this indicates either some Apple modification or somehow you
haven't got "VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off" in mm_cfg.py. In standard
Gnu Mailman with "VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off", the web create CGI
will always assume the list domain is that defined by DEFAULT_URL_HOST.
