[MlMt] Missing messages from gmail server

I have a gmail account for which some messages seemed to disappear from 
MailMate; i.e., when I searched for them, they were no longer there.

However, when I logged into gmail via the web, the messages DID show on 
the gmail server. So I then used the Rebuild Database Terminal command

rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/MailMate/*.tmp printf "OldDatabase" > 
~/Library/Application\ Support/MailMate/.rebuild.tmp

to re-sync the entire database. After the rebuild, the  messages that 
were missing initially STILL were not in MailMate.

Some numbers for comparison:

Gmail server:
	All Mail 91411
	Sent 3899
	All Messages 8210
	Sent Messages 4854

Any ideas on why such (large) differences should exist and how this can 
be rectified? Thanks.
