bin/arch is only intended for importing archives from elsewhere or
rebuilding the archive from scratch (--wipe option). It is not
normally required for day to day archive maintenance.

Presumably at least part of archiving is working since you have a file
for bin/arch to work from (<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox or ?).

Also, at this point your <listname>/2004-August/ directory exists even
if it was bin/arch that created it. Do messages (nnnnnn.html) get
added? Do the author, date, subject and thread .html files get updated?
How about the <listname>/2004-August.txt?

Maybe it's a permission issue?
