I posted a follow-up sometime after my original message regarding this.
What I had done was to wipe out all my existing mailman archives and when
I did the conversion again it worked fine. Try to find that message in
the archives because I had some thoughts in there about why I may have
been seeing the problem in the first place. I did notice that arch had a
problem if there were two identical messages in source mbox file.
Anyway, I haven't used arch again since I successfully converted all my
majordomo archives. Thanks for asking though.
