You need to provide more details here. What does really happen here?
Apache's access and error logs should give clues.

A guess is that your Apache isn't properly configured to create
self-referential URIs. Does other types of redirects (eg. Redirect
directive) work? Check your UseCanonicalName directive:

I think you should try to correct your links, as the use of mod_speling
should be a (temporary) workaround rather than a (final) solution. To do it
automatically might be tricky depending on the contents.
