Summary: responding to a message set previous 'to' recipients as 'cc' recipients → Responding to a message sets previous 'to' recipients as 'cc' recipients
This is not a bug - most MUAs behave the same way AFAIK. Is you think about it, this is reasonable - the response is TO whomever wrote the original message and CC other recepients of the original message.

I don't agree with comments #2 May be other MUA act this way, but the way people (like in large organisations or when multiple organisations are working together) are now distinguishing TO and CC implies that this quality of the relationship with the message is being preserved through the different replies. This is even more true when you happen you reply to a message you sent yourself: you don't want to set again by hand who is TO and who is CC, especially when you have 20 recipients or more Qualifiying as enhancement request at least ! PS : By extension, this should also taken into account in address book lists (who should to and cc by default), but it's another story !
