I use a similar setup: the list address is an alias for my mailbox, I 
then get the messages via POP3 and pass them through procmail. My 
recipes are as following:

* !^X-Been-There
* !^List-
* ^TO.*listaddress@domain\.com
| /usr/bin/tequila post listname
* ^X-Been-There
* ^List-Id: listname
* ^TO.*listaddress@domain\.com

which is mostly identical to yours...

BTW, the messages you posted from your procmail do not seem to relate to 
messages from or to the list: they say the address was different...
