Looks like you are overriding the default URL location of the logos by
placing IMAGE_LOGOS in the file.

${PREFIX}/mailman/Mailman/ has IMAGE_LOGOS defined as:

IMAGE_LOGOS = '/icons/'

All you need to do is add:

Alias /icons/ "/usr2/virtualwebs/icons/"

to your Apache configuration file(s) (it may already exists).
