It could be lots of things and it's difficult to even begin without
more info.

Check Mailman's logs. One guess is for some reason the BounceRunner
dies and then starts after a restart and processes all the backlogged
bounces. The 'qrunner' log might show this. Also check the 'error' log

Also check the queues in qfiles. Particularly qfiles/bounces.
