Exchange 2003 message tracking lock up

I'm having problems with exchange server System Manager using the message tracking tool.

When I do a search for a few messages it finds them fine, but if I open (double click) on multiple messages to track them if I attempt to view more than 2 messages my System Manager locks up. I end task it and start over again and it works fine until I try and track a 2nd message. Lock up again.

Is there a fix for this?

    I can't select more than one message to track at a time on my servers. And while a message tracking window is open I cannot select another message to track. Even if I minimise the window I cannot track more than one message.

    Found a little more about this problem.

    It looks like it's just a problem with letting a thread complete it's task before you kill it. One would assume when you close the window it would kill the search process. If you just let it sit on the first search for a while (at least until the magnifine glass stops moving) then go to the next message. All works well.

    Software improvement needed.
