I think it is best if they all do have the trailing slash, but there
are many places in Mailman's code where the trailing slash is checked
for and added if absent, but clearly not everywhere.

As Tokio mentioned in another reply, the archive was probably built
with the bad value and now that the list is fixed (assuming that is
the fix) the archive needs to be rebuilt.

As Tokio also suggested, since there isn't anything in the archive yet,
you could remove the list and recreate it (and use config_list to save
the settings before deleting and restore them later), but if you have
members and they have various different options, etc. it is probably
much simpler to just do

bin/arch --wipe <listname>

to recreate the archive.
