There must be some difference in headers or envelope sender between a
reply and a new message in these cases.

Have the user(s) both send a new message to you rather than the list
and reply to a list message but re-address the reply to you. Then look
at headers in these messages. Look at From:, Return-Path: (which
reflects the envelope sender), Reply-To: and Sender: which are the
addresses used to determine list membership (assuming you haven't set
SENDER_HEADERS in mm_cfg.py).
