I think you're saying that the messages get into the
archives/private/<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox file OK. I.e. when
you rerun 'bin/arch --wipe' you pick up new messages. If so, at least
you aren't losing them.

Two things you could look at are Mailman's 'error' log and
bin/check-perms, although since you said in your earlier post you're
on FC3, I suspect this is a SELinux issue. See
