But isn't it also that the message you want is always in the same folder 
(representing a month of messages), and then, what do you find the 
difference of message-number to be ? Is it nearly always the same value ? 
This might tell you how to do a temporary workaround.

Meanwhile, I just do a plain-text search through the whole collection of 
the mbox files (that I update every few months whenever I need it, since a 
few years), but it doesn't always work, because plain-text is just very 
close to the mbox email format, not exactly the same.
