i feel really stupid for being the only one to reply to my *own* posts... 
(i guess nobody is taking me seriously??... :) )
anyway it looks like my archive database has become corrupted since no posts
have been added since last sunday... which is quite possible since i had a
some trouble with the server last weekend (which is more due to lack of system
resources and my own fault sort of... my fastcgi scripts are not that reliable
(yet) and sometimes tend to crash the server, especially if mailman/exmin are
*very* busy with posting messages at the same time)
so my question is: how can i fix the archive database?
i guess i have to turn off archiving for now...
