I've the same problem (rebuild of summaries over and over again, taking minutes).

For me, rebuild occurs after the Microsoft "ntbackup" backuped my Thunderbird profile directory (to some samba network drive).

Thunderbird version (20070221)
SeaMonkey v1.0.x is not supported anymore.
Thunderbird v1.5.x is not supported anymore.

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?
(or Thunderbird v2.0.0.12 ?)
