Hello, Mark,

This action solved the stated problem but now I note that the same
situation pertains in "Tend to pending moderator requests" where
held messages cannot be read or actioned.

Also "Go to list archives". (we do not have this running). The other two
links are fine.

I see three more 'absolute=1' entries in admindb.py - shall I change all
