exchange 2003 moving mailbox goes over 100% never moves

i am moving a mailbox from one exchange 2003 sp 2 server to a new one with the same specs.   the mailbox move exceeds 100% and goes up to 2000%.  It continues this cycle indefinitely and i have to cancel it.  It stays on "common views" during the move process.

the only thing i see in the logs are logon failures for the person which i do not think is related to the issue.  please assist.

Thanks

yeah...there must be a corrupted item somewhere in that mailbox; i've seen that several times when moving

being that small, i'd say just export the mailbox to a pst, then delete from the old server and create on the new server

the logon failures are because the mailbox is not available during the move process

as far as the above 100% status, i've seen that happen when there are corrupted items
how big is this mailbox?
