I provide hypertext versions of three different mailing lists, and

accelerating!  For example, in one list

jumped from msg00074.html to msg00638.html in one two-day period!

Any idea of what's going on here?  Admittedly, I haven't cleared out 
my "mbox" in a while, and MHonArc runs from a cron job.

[I hope I remember correctly]

I think you trigger a mhonarc V1.1 bug with the -add option (sorry have
no vanila v1.1 around anymore): Assume you have a mbox with n messages
and the mhonarc seq is from 0 - (n-1). Now one new message gets added to
the mbox and you run mhonarc again with: 

   mhonarc -add -mbox mbox-file

The new message gets the sequence number 2n-1 instead of n. 
(This is fixed in mhonarc v1.2 beta.)


Thanks for any ideas.
