I suspect the issue may be a missing "ServerAlias mapserver.gis.umn.edu" 
in the mapserver.org VirtualHost on the OSGeo server at (I 
do not have access to verify)

i.e. the DNS entry for mapserver.gis.umn.edu already points correctly to 
the mapserver.org server:

mapserver.gis.umn.edu.	17999	IN	CNAME	mapserver.org.
mapserver.org.		3599	IN	A

And the server responds with the Geotools virutalhost 
contents for any domain that is not recognized, or if you access the 
server directly by IP:

It may also be a good idea to set the default VirtualHost for to be a redirect to osgeo.org, or to anything 
except falling back on one of the project-specific VirtualHost as is 
currently the case with the fallback on the geotools.org virtualhost.
