[Mailman-Users] admindb web forms not making changes

I received moved a Mailman instance (via rsync) from a Debian 6 machine to
Debian 8, and while most things are generally okay, some the admin web
forms don't appear to be working anymore (under Apache 2.4). I've run
"check_perms" and it comes back clean.

So I can create a new list ("dmtest1") just fine, and the owner gets a
message with the new password and such. I then use another e-mail account
to send a message to "dmtest1-subscribe" which sends back to corresponding
"confirm" e-mail; I click on the confirm URL and that works.

The owner / moderator of the list then gets the 'new sub req' message. I
click on the "at your conv" link with "admindb/dmtest1", enter the
password from the creation message, and I get the list of sub requests.
However, when I select "Approve" and click on "Submit All Data", I get
sent to the "Dmtest1 Moderator Authentication" page to enter the password.
The following appears in Apache's access.log when I click on 'submit': - - [30/Jun/2016:08:52:19 -0400] "POST
/mailman/admindb/dmtest1 HTTP/1.1" 200 1268
"http://lists.[foo-example].org/mailman/admindb/dmtest1" "Mozilla/5.0
(X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0"

There's nothing in Apache's error.log, and nothing in
/usr/local/mailman/logs/. Re-entering the password and
approving/submitting is just a loop.

Another list admin says that they have some messages with bodies that are
bigger than the list limit, and that "discard" does not work. He says that
"the page just refreshes".

Any ideas?
