I was mining in a LTC P2Pool pool and found a share.
As I understand it, if the conditions outlined in this answer would have been satisfied, I should have received a payout from the next block found by the P2Pool network. As a matter of fact, It seems I received a payout from the next six blocks (from 414890 to 415003).

I failed to find the rationale behind this. Could you please enlighten me?

The payout method in p2pool is based on PPLNS. In this method, every share is rewarded for each block found within the next N shares. Depending on the exact value of N and the luck in finding blocks by the pool, this can mean several blocks.
