I filter on X-List: headers as well and so far I haven't noticed any
problems with this. Perhaps it's possible that a different filter is
triggered which does something but leaves the message in the Inbox.

When/if it happens again, can you let me know whose email caused the
problem on your end? I can then compare my copy of that email and see if
the X-List: header is indeed missing or not.
