Aehm, sorry for not making this known much earlier, but some weeks ago
I found that archive does not create flat file archives correctly. In
fact crossposts are not handled correctly by trying go create links
between destination files.

I'll create a patch this weekend and mail it to bugs (or patches?).

Additionaly I extened archive to write flat files in mbox format. So
archives are simpler to use. I'll submit this patch along.

Stay tuned. ;-)

Greetings, Charly!
