I also am an user of a web-hosting with cPanel and Mailman 2.1.2.
I haven't that problem, and I successfully changed capitalisation
of name of my list (when I created a list using cPanel web-interface,
I entered XXxxx as list name, but in fact Xxxxx was created,
then I changed listname to XXxxx using Mailman web-interface).

Compare cPanel versions and release numbers on main cPanel user page.
May be the hosting with the problem uses a pirated (non-licenced)
outdated buggy copy of cPanel ( + changed Mailman) software.

You can try to tell the web-hosting to ask cPanel staff to do so.
And post yourself to http://forums.cpanel.net

It's possible with any helpdesk. :)
