Yes, I had a pretty much identical problem (RH 5.1 machine).  What does an
ls -l look like in your /home/mailman/archives/private/ dir look like?
Scott (scott at chronis.pobox.com) logged onto my system and found that a
bunch of the symlinks were all crackheaded..some pointed to the right
place, and others didn't. After he fixed this, (and I used the arch script
to import my accumulated list archives) all has been fine and dandy.
