I finally found what the problem is.

The archiver is unable to parse correctly the first date format:
Date: 05 Feb 2002 14:44:57 +0100
Date: Tue, 5 Feb 2002 16:31:01 +0100

As the RFC specify the day is optional, I tend to consider this as a bug 
in Mailman.

Shall I report this problem on mailman bug tracker ?
