[Mailman-Users] broken mbox files: No blank lines before "From"

I've been browsing the archives, bug lists and google for a while but
was unable to find a solution for my problem, so I'm asking here.
The mbox archive of one of my lists (~ 15.000 mails in 2 years) is a
little broken: In approx. 5% (guessed) of the cases, two mails are not
correctly separated by a blank line, i.e. the "From " header of the
latter email is directly under the last (non-empty) line of the
preceding letter. This results in some problems:
1) I am in the process of converting the mbox file to a different format
- this will not work with broken mbox files like this.
2) List archives are not correctly rebuilt by "~mailman/bin/arch"
Do you know how this problem occurs? Should I report this to mailman's
Do you have any idea how to fix the problem? I'd be happy to hack a
newline in all necessary places - but the box is a little big...
Do you have any knowledge of some "fix-my-mbox-program" that does the
job? Can anyone help me with a perl one-liner or sth?
