Missing mailbox messages,

Rebuilding the sent mailbox always crash the Mail application

I am missing mailbox messages, i.e. in sent mailbox the list is mostly empty (should be around 4,000 massages).

I did the following:
- Rebuild some of the mail boxes, rebuilding the sent mailbox always crash the Mail application
- After Restoring from Time Machine, some time I could see for a few seconds messages in the sent Mailboxes and then it disappear again.
- Using Cocktail do not help either  
- Repair Disk using Disk utility from installer disk didn't help

Restoring from buck up made doubled all the files in the mail folder. Mining it Released the missing mailes and add the ones from the back up.

It's not a real solution but the result is that: I didn't lost my mails, that one should make back ups, and that some one has to find a solution to this bug.
