See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ioA9> (ignore the "keeps asking
me to re-enter my password" part of the title).

Also, view the source of the page and look at the action= URL in the
form tag. Is this the same URL you see in the address bar of the
browser? If not, the issue is probably that of the web server
redirecting the URL and losing the POST data.

This can be fixed by setting DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN appropriately in
mm_cfg.py and running fix_url on the affected lists. See
