[Mailman-Users] Help with a regular expression

I know this is a simple question but I don't have the knowledge to 
figure it out.

I am running RedHat 8.0 and which came with Mailman 2.0.13.  It 
suggests adding the following to the httpd.conf file:

# Uncomment the following line, replacing www.example.com with your server's
# name, to redirect queries to /mailman to the listinfo page (recommended).
# RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$ http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

That used to work fine.  I just upgraded to Mailman 2.1.  I created 
the list "mailman" as instructed at the end of section 4 of the 
INSTALL document but cannot get to the administrative page 
http://www.example.com/mailman/admin/mailman or the list overview 
page http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo/mailman because 
"RedirectMatch" thinks it is http://www.example.com/mailman and just 
redirects it the top level listinfo page.

I am aware that I have two options:
   1. Rename the "mailman" list
   2. Remove the "RedirectMatch" statement from the httpd.conf file.

Is there a third?  I tried fiddling with the regular expression, but 
I just do not know what I am doing.  Any help would be appreciated.
