Wrong layout files

It would be great if someone could give me advice on the following issue, which is most probably an easy one if you’re not a newbie like me.

I’m running my shop under my own theme which works without any problems. Now I’ve created another store within the same installation, but under a separate domain, which also works. I’ve now copied the skin and layouts files of my theme (theme A), altered them and copied them to the skin and layout folders of the theme for the second domain shop (theme B).

I went to CONFIG, selected the new website (B) and changed:

skin -> theme B
layout -> theme B

Now the second store under the new domain is running with the correct skin (theme B), but it still uses the layout files from theme A.

I’ve updated all caches, but still it’s using the wrong layout files.

Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English, I’m not a native speaker.
