What's in Mailman's error log?

It appears that archived messages are being stored in the
archives/private/LIST.mbox/LIST.mbox file but not being added to the
pipermail (HTML) archive until you run bin/arch. Thus, some
error/exception is occurring during archiving probably related to
permissions since bin/arch works. There should be information in
Mailman's error log about these failures.
