I generate a list of the 5 (could be any 'n') most recent messages 
by grepping and sorting the contents of the output directory. This 
works well for me since I have the archives sorted by month so 
there are usually only a few hundred messages and the sort+grep 
doesn't take too long. This gets me the n most recent files and
I get the subject of the message through another grep + a regex 
of these files.

This also avoids the problem you are seeing since I am processing
the archived HTML messages.

This is most certainly a hack (and the '-scan' option sounds
more elegant) but it has worked for me for a while.
