happens with mailman/pipermail occasionally. It is more reliable to link
to message ids, e.g. via gmame:
http://mid.gmane.org/4D779F63.9050506%40irit.fr (random example from my browser history)

lists.debian.org also allows links with message ids:
http://lists.debian.org/20120408083121.GB9680@flashgordon (another random example)
but I don’t know if this is an easy to enable standard mailman feature.
