The corrupt file is lists/listname/request.pck - the file that holds
the outstanding moderator requests. You should also be seeing some
error if you go to the admindb interface for this list. If you just
remove the request.pck, that will fix this problem, but I doubt it
will fix the non-archiving problem. That sounds like a corrupt archive
database, but bin/arch --wipe should fix that.
The request.pck file has been removed.
BTW, the list that has the corrupt request.pck probably isn't the one
that's not archiving. Do

bin/show_qfiles
qfiles/shunt/1218409013.986546+40eb47837328b00ded0f971e044058c916c0e0c3.pck
to see the shunted post which should indicate (in To:) what list it's
for. If it's To: more than one list, use bin/dumpdb instead to see the
listname in the metadata.

There may be several of these shunted posts. After you remove the bad
request.pck, you can run bin/unshunt to reprocess them. Before running
unshunt it is always a good idea to look at all the files in
qfiles/shunt to make sure they are all current and relevant and remove
the ones that aren't.
Yikes. Didn't realize that Mailman was maintaining a queue like that.
Nuked all of the really old messages, cleaned out the spam, ran
"unshunt" and got various errors due to permissions. Ran "check_perms
- -v" and "check_perms -f" to correct that. Re-ran "unshunt" and most of
the messages were picked up and delivered to the lists.
Anyway, after you take care of all this, if you still have the archive
issue, check the error log for errors relating to that (from
ArchRunner) and post a traceback if you can't figure it out (it may be
a permissions issue).
The list with problems has an updated archive now. I'll wait and see
what happens when the next message comes in. Looking at the
"logs/error" file, I did get some errors when I unshunted the files.
Turns out that one of the other lists had a corrupt pipermail.pck file.
~ After nuking and rebuilding that lists archives, I think things are
running as they should be right now.

Thanks for the info,
Dave
