I had the same problem with Mailman 2.1.4 with a list created via the
web interface with a public archive. You should be seeing messages
similar to

Apr 17 18:13:10 2004 (2242) Archive file access failure:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory:

in your error log.

If I recall correctly, we created the archives/private/listname.mbox/
directory by hand with appropriate owner/group/permissions. After
that, bin/unshunt should get things going.
