Configure Apache Redirect with a topic

I am able to do this in Apache
   Redirect permanent / http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/

And it works as expected. The URL http://mbtips.info redirects to http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/.

However, I can't figure out what to do to add onto the end of the URL. An attempt to use http://mbtips.info/WhatsMyType does not go to http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/WhatsMyType (as I think it should, as written), but to http://wiki.cfcl.com/TypediaWhatsMyType.

If I put a double // into the URL address bar, it works: http://mbtips.info//WhatsMyType, but that's a brittle workaround.

Any suggestions?

I've tried
  Redirect permanent / http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/
  Redirect permanent / http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia//
  Redirect permanent / http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/\/

They all turn into .../TypediaWhatsMyType

Apparently these two do work; I had to clear the Browser cache.
  RedirectMatch 301 /(.*)$ http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/$1
  RedirectMatch 301 (.*)/(.*) http://wiki.cfcl.com/Typedia/$2
