We are having the same problem. I am managing mailman lists at two different
sites. From each site, I received error reports from a list admin about 
receiving bounce errros from another list. And as in your case, the
list that would receive the bounces was the first list created at that site.

The problems started this summer, around the time we switched to mailman 
2.0.13 (could be pure coincidence though). I couldn't figure out how to
solve it; there has been nothing suspicious in the log files. So, I am 
currently working on making transition to 2.1b4, hoping this will make 
the problem go away...
