It appears to be a bug (introduced by me in 2.1.13 by the fix for
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/342162>). The test for "this
host" doesn't properly account for the :port.

One issue for a fix is the fact that example.com:123 and
example.com:456 may be considered different hosts or they may not, so
I think I'll ignore that.

You have two ways to proceed. I think you said all your lists are in
one domain, so you can just set


in mm_cfg.py, and all your advertised lists will display on the
overview, or you can fix Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py (and admin.py).

I have reported this as
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/597741>, and a tentative (so
far untested) patch to fix it is attached.
