Because you *added* the line instead of editing the existing line. The
@archive_dirs setting is further down in the file. Since majordomo.cf is
eval'ed, the last definition wins, so you really didn't change anything.

Yes, you end up editing majordomo.cf every time you add an archived list
when you use this definition. Note that Mj doesn't create the archive
directories listed here, they must already exist, i.e. you must create
them as part of setting up the list.
