archive of 721 messages stops at 66 and acts like LIFO

1996-12-12 16:10:59
I've seen some discussion about sending messages to mhonarc in batch but I 
continue to add them as they arrive. Maybe that's why the following 
problem arose.

I created a mhonarc archive back in October for a mail list, watched it for 
a few days, and then forgot about it. Someone complained today and when I 
looked there were 721 message files (msg00000.html to msg00720.html) but 
only 68 appeared on the web index page. Here's a portion of the scan output:

68 messages mhonarc -scan
Reading database ...
68 messages in .:

If I send another test message, it becomes 722 and replaces 721 on the list.

Most peculiar.
