No... it is NOT wrong.

The solution they provided works perfectly for me. I think you messed up
by inserting the tilde.

Here is what I have in my Apache configuration file:

ScriptAlias /mailman/ /home/mailman/install/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman/install/archives/public/

<Directory /home/mailman/install/archives/public>
Options FollowSymLinks

That has been working great for me, for a LONG time.
