[Mailman-Users] "Uncaught bounce notification" question/problem

When one user on one of my lists replies to list messages, they get sent 
to the bounce address and show up as uncaught bounces. I understand why 
this is happening, so that itself isn't my question. In the latest 
instance, this user also CC'ed the correct list address. It looks like 
the message was sent to:

To: A individual address
To: The "list-bounces" address
CC: The correct list address

My question is why the message never showed up for moderation (the list 
is moderated)? All that showed up was the "uncaught bounce" message. It 
seems that the actual message should also have come through. Is 
duplicates processing preventing that? In this case, I would prefer that 
the real message be processed and the bounce message be discarded 
instead of the other way around. If this isn't the case, what could have 
caused the message not to come through?

Here are the headers (with stuff crossed out or changed):
