My guess is that it's *your* filtering that is confusing things, I hit
this problem too.  A mail from/to xubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com will be
'seen' by a filter searching for ubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com so will
quite likely drop into your Ubuntu mailbox.  I needed to make my
filtering search for xubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com first so that the
messages to that list were correctly put into my xubuntu mailbox.

I'm a member of both the xubuntu and ubuntu lists and they really are
separate lists (and both get messages).
