OK. If I understand, you attempt to create a list from the web UI and
you get an error "Unknown virtual host: www.theglobalvoice.info".

This means two things: 1) the list was not created so, of course, no
aliases were created for it, and 2) the host www.theglobalvoice.info
is not a key in the VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary which means there is no
'whatever.the.email.host.is') entry in mm_cfg.py.

So what add_virtualhost() did you put in mm_cfg.py?

What is in Mailman's error log corresponding to the "we hit a bug"?
