The main index (TOC) for a list is rebuilt with each post. It seems
that the archives/private/<listname>/pipermail.pck file may be missing
March and April from the archives attribute for some reason. You can
confirm this by doing

 bin/dumpdb archives/private/list1/pipermail.pck

and looking at the archives attribute.

I would guess that there is a permissions problem somewhere that is
causing this. When you run bin/arch (presumably with the --wipe
option) you are running it as a user (root?) which can access
everything so it works, but maybe the 'mailman' group can't access the
2006-March and 2006-April stuff.
