[Mailman-Users] diagnosing messages missing from archives

I'm working on a complaint about messages being delivered, but not getting
into a private mailman archives.
I found a discussion about diagnosing it, from a few years ago, here:
This is on a very low activity list, so I can see that the messages are not
just threaded unexpectedly (from an edited subj line). I'm not sure I can
get the full headers of the message to check for x_no_archive or similar
(though I'm trying).
I do see this in the error log:

Is that the error I'm looking for? That ArchRunner line looks relevant.
It's a reasonably common series of entries in the log (10ish times a day),
though the timing doesn't line up with the date/time on the messages that
are missing. Is that normal? Is there a way to verify that the error is
specific to any given missing message?
