[Mailman-Users] Configuring Apache for Mailman - /pipermail/ is redirecting in a way I don't like

I can't see the archives because Apache is redirecting requests for

[root at www2 httpd]# telnet lists.tblc.org 80
Connected to lists.tblc.org (
Escape character is '^]'.
HEAD /pipermail/ipac/ HTTP/1.1
Host: lists.tblc.org

HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Date: Mon, 19 Dec 2005 18:20:34 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat)
Location: http://lists.tblc.org/mailman/listinfo
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Connection closed by foreign host.

These Apache directives are in play:

In conf/httpd.conf:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName lists.tblc.org
DocumentRoot /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/
RedirectMatch /index.html http://lists.tblc.org/mailman/listinfo
TransferLog /var/log/httpd/lists.tblc.org/access_log
ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/lists.tblc.org/error_log

In conf.d/mailman.conf:

ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/
<Directory /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/>
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
<Directory /var/lib/mailman/archives/public>
    Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$ http://lists.tblc.org/mailman/listinfo

Can anyone spot where I'm going wrong?
