Only if archiving is turned on. If archiving is turned off, then the
mbox files are not kept, and no archives are created.

That's normal. When you try to take messages after they've been
munged and re-build an mbox format "raw" archive to be processed by
bin/arch, there's going to be some strange problems. There's just no
way around that, since the original content has been forever lost.
