First of all, config_list will issue that message whenever you set a
list attribute that isn't in the web admin GUI, but the message means it
'restored' the attribute to the value you gave, not it's original value.
That should work. Why do you think it doesn't?

Second, the preferred tool for changing web_page_url is fix_url.py. See
the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9> and perhaps others that mention

Note also that public archive URLs are somewhat different and are based
on PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL rather than DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN, although the
'hostname' should come from that in web_page_url.
