[Mailman-Users] Permission problem in handling moderator requests; also archive queries

I have three questions - two general, and one about a particular 

1) Is there a plan to offer a search function for private archives?

2) One of our lists has monthly archives. Is there a way to combine 
older archives (more than a year or two old) into yearly archives?

3) I administer a few Mailman lists (version 2.1.9.cp2) on a cPanel X 
account that I control as well. I have a problem with the "Tend to 
pending moderator requests" page. Everything works normally as long 
as I am able to approve, reject, discard, etc on the main adminb page. 
But if I click on "view all messages from" to deal with messages from a 
single person, I get a page with that person's messages but, whatever I 
do, I get an error message, given below. 

This is a creeping problem. I saw it first on one list, and I didn't worry 
since I was about to delete the list. But for the past few weeks, I have 
the problem on my main list.

Before posting this, I set up a new list with just one member and posted 
a message big enough to be held up for moderation. I had no problem 
clicking on "view all messages from" and disposing of the message. It 
didn't matter whether or not the list name had a hyphen, in case that is 

Thanks in advance.
