I have updated the scripts at
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/prune_arch> and
<http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~msapiro/scripts/prune_arch> again. The script
will now skip unparseable messages and messages with missing or
unparseable Date: headers and report the same.

It only reports the sequence number of the message in the mbox, but if
you run the script with the -b or --backup option, you can find the
skipped message(s) in the listname.mbox.bak file with something like

grep "^From " listname.mbox.bak | grep -n . | grep ^xxx:

where xxx is the sequence number of a skipped message.
