I looked for "first fresh" in the Python source and found this comment:

                # There's been enough posts since last bounce that we're
                # restarting.  (Might should keep track of who goes stale
                # how often.)

so I'm guessing it's "there was a bounce record, but then we got
a bunch more posts without bounces, so we're resetting this particular
bouncer and starting again".
> 2.	And how do I clear the bounce stats for a list??

The stuff is stored in the list item itself, in an attribute
called bounce_info; you could use withlist to hack a little Python
snippet, like:

python -i bin/withlist -l <listname>	<<< load list with lock
m.bounce_info 		<<< display current bounce information (for fun)
m.bounce_info = {}	<<< delete it
m.Save()		<<< save the change to the list
^D			<<< quit python, unlock the list

See the comments at the head of bin/withlist for more info.
