oh damn... I never even thought to look there.  I really do need to 
remember to keep it simple and go with the basics.  Especially since 
turning ipv6 off in centos turned out to be a lot harder than I ever 
expected it should be.

The ipv6 localhost address was the second line in the hosts file and 
ipv4 was the first.  I thought the first line would have taken 
precedence unless mailman is specifically asking for the ipv6 localhost 

Either way, I've cleaned that up now too.  Thanks!
