archive_volume_frequency has nothing to do with this. Setting it to
Daily will just create separate index pages for each day instead of
the default each month.

Also, cron/nightly_gzip has nothing to do with creating archives in the
first place. it only gzips the <period>.txt file into <period>.txt.gz

Check Mailman's error log. If other lists are archiving OK, there may
be a permissions issue involving this list. Have you run
