[Mailman-Users] Online Archives are dead

I just happened to be looking at my online archives tonight, and discovered that they suddenly stopped working sometime this past monday.

I have several lists, and all seem to be working fine, including digests.  But when I look inside the /home/mailman/archives/private/(listname)/2000-November/ 
directory, the last message is dated Nov 6, 00:33.  This isn't quite right!

Another strangeness I see is that when I issue a LS command in that directory, -sometimes- I only see a few files - not the couple hundred that are in there.  Example:

[root at main 2000-November]# d
./           000297.html  000365.html  000433.html  000501.html  000569.html
../          000298.html  000366.html  000434.html  000502.html  000570.html
000202.html  000299.html  000367.html  000435.html  000503.html  000571.html
000232.html  000300.html  000368.html  000436.html  000504.html  000572.html
000233.html  000301.html  000369.html  000437.html  000505.html  000573.html
000234.html  000302.html  000370.html  000438.html  000506.html  000574.html
000295.html  000363.html  000431.html  000499.html  000567.html
000296.html  000364.html  000432.html  000500.html  000568.html
[root at main 2000-November]#      

There really are files from 202-606, including the .html files.

Also of note: inside /home/mailman/archives/private/(listname).mbox/ there is a rather large file that seems to be the accumulation of ALL messages from when I started the list up until the latest post.  Why is this, and when does it get deleted?  This could get really HUGE on an active list!

I am running the 2.0rc1 version of Mailman on a Linux-Mandrake 7.1 system.
