I'm not completely sure, but you may have to upgrade GTK+ to the newer
version (2.4.9 is rather old).

Enable "Enable strict checking of the integrity of summary caches" in
Common prefs - Details - Advanced. As written in the description, it
will degrade the performance of displaying summary. This was always
enabled at Sylpheed 1.0.x, but the option was introduced at 2.0.0 for
speed up.
