No, I don't think so. Many sites have a similar rule which is more
often something like

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$ http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

As you are aware, these only redirect requests from the tld in your
case or the tld/mailman to the site listinfo page.

Your issue, if it is caused by a redirect discarding POST data as
mentioned in FAQ 4.45 would have to be a redirect which would affect 
URLs like http://lists.domain.com/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/<listname> or
http://lists.domain.com/cgi-bin/mailman/admindb/<listname> or whatever
you're using to access these pages.
