Restarting the ArchRunner did not make a difference, and the logs didn't
give any clues. Having tried several other steps, I finally resorted to
rebuilding the archive. Especially as I had a powerfailure somewhere mid
January, I assumed it was likely the database, despite not seeing
anything in logs.
Rebuilding the archive for that list resolved the stuck status of the
ArchRunner, so I guess my assumption was correct, or at least close
enough...  ;-)

Anyway, it now has 161 message left to archive, so I hope to return to
normal CPU levels soon...  ;-)
