I had another thought. You said you are on a cPanel installation. See
and understand from that that I may well not know what I'm talking
about, but cPanel has patched Mailman to support lists of the same
name in different domains. The site list is quite likely an area that
is handled differently, but you could try just creating a
mailman at mydomain.com list (which cPanel will create with an internal
name of mailman_mydomain.com) and see if it will receive mail sent to
the mailman at mydomain.com address.
