Um, it looks like your resource file has been clipped.  The IDXPGBEGIN
resource is not terminated by a </IdxPgBegin> tag, and there is no
<MODTIME> tag to enable the MODTIME resource.

With MODTIME added, I cannot reproduce on my system using the resource
file you provided with the latest version of MHonArc.  I do not
recall any changes done between v2.5.13 and v2.6.1 related this,
so I doubt anything has been "secretly" fixed, assuming there is a bug.

You did not provide specifics about your system, so it is hard
to tell if that could be a factor.

One possibility is that Perl's utime() operator is failing.

Do you have any other processes that could potentially change
the modification times of archive files?

Does mhonarc generate any warning messages?
