I am unable to duplicate this problem. I see the problem in the archive
index at
I have downloaded the
file (which by the way is doubly gzipped[1]) and can see the several
messages therein with empty Subject: header, but when I process these
through the pipermail Archiver, they get archived with a Subject: of 'No
subject' (even in the 2014-November.txt file) and properly indexed.

This may be a Debian Mailman bug, but it appears that this doesn't
happen with standard GNU Mailman. You could try filing a Debian bug and
see what they say.

If you have access to the
file, I would like to see at least one of these improperly indexed
messages from that file.

[1] The contents of
is a file named 2014-November.txt, but this is actually a gzipped file
which needs to be renamed 2014-November.txt.gz and gunzipped again to
get the plain text. This may also be a Debian bug (I've seen it before).
