I am very confused. There should be no archives in any archives/public
directories, only symlinks to the corresponding archives/private

Also, there should only be one set of private and public archives in
the directories defined by PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR and
PRIVATE_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR in Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py. In a standard
distribution the normal default for these is
/usr/lib/mailman/archives/public and
/usr/lib/mailman/archives/private, although in RedHat's fc3 package, I
believe the locations would be /var/lib/mailman/archives/public and

Did you perhaps install RedHat's rpm initially and then upgrade from
source or something like that?
