It shouldn't matter. In my installation, I have

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$  /mailman/listinfo

in the main configuration prior to any VirtualHost blocks, and it works
just fine for the main server and all virtual hosts. I don't specify a
scheme or a host in my redirect target which just defaults them to the
scheme and host of the original URL which is more appropriate in a
virtual host environment - you don't want to redirect
http://virt1.example.com/mailman to
http://virt2.example.com/mailman/listinfo - but I don't think that
difference should cause the problem you see. (I have reported this
latter situation at
