	I would be willing to bet that you've run into a message with 
some unusual characters or character sets, and this has caused all 
further archive processing to stop for that list.

	I've seen this before.  What I had to do was to find the 
offending message in the appropriate queue directory, then move that 
aside, and reload Mailman to get it to start processing archives 

	I'm pretty sure that Mark has some instructions that he has 
posted on this subject which can be found in the archives of the 
mailman-users list, and that his instructions will be much more clear 
than what I tried to describe above.
