How does that compare with a list post, i.e., mail to
testlist at hostname.com?

That log message looks wrong to me. Clearly, there is an alias involved

testlist-request: "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman request testlist"

and I am not familiar with sendmail logs so it may be just fine. Does a
post that works show "mailer=prog"?

What happened to that mail? Did the sender receive a reply?
