If you did literally the above, it didn't work. You must not have a .py
extension on fix_url. Also, it appears you are trying to do two lists.
This requires two commands:

withlist -l -r fix_url testsdu -u newdomain.sdu.dk
withlist -l -r fix_url mytest -u newdomain.sdu.dk

If the above is not the issue, then perhaps you are not visiting the
correct listinfo URL. Lists whose host in their web_page_url attribute
is newdomain.sdu.dk will only appear on the listinfo page
http://newdomain.sdu.dk/mailman/listinfo. They won't appear on any other
host's listinfo unless you set VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off in mm_cfg.py.
