Yep, that makes sense.

Unfortunately this Redirect interferes with the
	ScriptAlias / /var/mailman/cgi-bin/
(Whichever one comes first stops the other doing anything.) 

The combination
	DocumentRoot /var/mailman/cgi-bin
	Options ExecCGI
doesn't work, since the cgi-bin scripts aren't identified as scripts.
I could put in explicit ScriptAliases for every entry in cgi-bin, or
maybe rename all the files with .cgi extensions.  Do any Apache gurus
have a nicer solution?
