I agree with Carl. I have no idea what the actual issue is, but given
that the result has something like
http://example.com/mailman/admindb/list_example.com in the address bar
but the content displayed is as if the browser had done a 'GET /' would
seem to say either the browser is broken - very unlikely and easily
confirmed by trying a different browser - or something between the
browser and the ultimate web server is the cause.
