That sounds like an OS bug to me...
> 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,
that's how it works. You can rebuild the archive from that mbox.
> and when does it get deleted? This could get really HUGE on an active list!
Yup, as could the archives themselves. Mailman doesn't try to rotate
them for you.
