Hypermail 2.0b3 is old. Please give the latest release (2.0a21) a try.

Try the new version and see if your problem is fixed.

I'm not clear if you're doing complete hypermail archive rebuilds from a mailbox (which works - really doesn't matter what was there before) or deleting stuff from the _hypermail_ generated archive and then adding new messages individual with hypermail (which I think is likely to confuse things). If you need to be able to remove stuff from the archive then I think you need to keep all the messages available in a mailbox archive and do a full hypermail run after deleting anything from the mailbox.
