i'm using mailman 1.0 and the ~mailman/bin/arch program to convert my
majordomo mbox format archives to mailman pipermail archives.

most of the majordomo archives were converted fine, but a small percentage
fail to convert, with the following output from the arch python program:

figuring article archives
Processing article #2 into archives ['1999-June']
Updating index files for archive [1999-June]
Computing threaded index
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/home/mailman/bin/arch", line 47, in ?

  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/HyperDatabase.py", line 256, in setThreadKey
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/HyperDatabase.py", line 144, in __setitem__
    self.current_index = self.sorted.index(current_item)
ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list

i realize that this may not be enough information for anyone to diagnose
the problem, but i'm hoping someone may already have encountered this
problem and knows how to fix it or workaround it.

if you need more information, such as the majordomo archive files i'm trying
to convert, let me know.
