I'm using thunderbird at home on PC, and at work on a Mac. Both of these installations are erasing my mail sponteneously: AGGH!.

Here's a workaround: use search, and search for *all* messages received after (say) 1 Jan 2000. You will see all your invisible mail subject lines again. Select those you want to recover, click on 'file', and select a different folder: it might take a while to execute, but it'll recover your mail. I've had to do this process three times this week, so I'm of the opinion this software's great, but losing my emails!? nope: can't trust it.
