They are all correct.  www.mplayerhq.hu has two DNS A entries, one pointing
at the main server (aka natsuki, www1, lists, svn, ftp), the other to a
web page mirror.  The main server redirects /pipermail and /mailman to
lists.mplayerhq.hu.  Your Firefox happened to pick the IP of the web mirror,
which doesn't have list archives, wget happened to pick the main IP and knew
to follow the redirect, and curl also picked the main IP.
