You were right!  I had completely forgotten I had added a line in 
/etc/httpd/conf.d/mailman.conf :

RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$ http://www.tecnopolis.ca/mailman/listinfo

changing it to:

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$ http://www.tecnopolis.ca/mailman/listinfo

solves the problem.  I had added that ages ago so that hits to /mailman
(no filename) on my site would go to the right place (listinfo) rather
than going nowhere... I'm not even sure if this is required anymore.  I 
didn't notice the problem till now because I never used to have a Mailman 
site list set up so I would not have noticed the obscure bug generated by 
not having the caret.

Thanks for the help!
