This is all sort of embarrassing, but may shed light on why other
users have similar problems.

Both servers running RedHat had pre-existing mailman installations
that came with the distribution by default! One was located at
/usr/lib/mailman and one at /var/mailman, and had mailman.conf in
conf.d that set the /mailman/ directory before my ScriptAlias could
work. I didn't find this until doing a 'find / -name list_info.py'

Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.
