It may or may not be a bug. Possibly your rss patch is intended to
create links from URLs like the above to the actual message and that
part is missing.

There are a few versions of a patch at
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/558014> and this post
with this link <http://vnetworx.net/mm_rss.patch> and those patches look
like they generate proper archive URLs.
