[Mailman-Users] Problems with archive

I got Mailman 2.0b6 running on FreeBSD 4.2 / Sendmail

If the archive-option is turned off via the web-interface, everything
works just fine - all the subscribers gets their mail.

But if I turn the archive-option on, all messages are being held in the
/qfiles/ directory and the error-log gets filled up with text like:

Jul 04 13:20:01 2001 (20761) Archive file access failure:
        /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/list.mbox/list.mbox (0,

  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Mailbox.py", line 41, in
    self.fp.seek(-1, 2)
IOError: (0, 'Error')

The program /bin/check_perms returns "No problems found"

# ls -la /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/list.mbox/
-rw-rw-r--  1 mailman  mailman    0 Jul  4 13:20 list.mbox

Does anyone have a clue what I have to do to fix this problem?

Kind regards,
