Your original post contained the following, presumably contained in the 
mailman.conf installed by the rpm.

> # 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

and an off list reply to me contained

>> What do apache's access_log and error_log say for the access?
> Nothing in error_log - access_log (at LogLevel debug) just shows:
> ip - - [12/Jul/2008:14:26:24 +0100] "GET /mailman HTTP/1.1" 302 307 "-"
> "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906
> Firefox/3.0"

which looks like the URL you're going to is http://.../mailman and 
getting redirected (302 status) as opposed to http://.../mailman/listinfo.

This, together with the fact that you say (in another off list message) 
that the problem only occurs with listinfo, seems to say that the 
problem is somehow related to the RedirectMatch. Presumably, it doesn't 
really say "www.example.com". What does it say? and what is the 
access_log entry immediately following the one above for the same IP?
