I guess that the crash is triggered by a message which has been
saved to your sent-mail folder some time after it worked at first,
when it started to crash when opening it.

Your index-rule works here fine and I think that it would be
a very good default setting for this rule entry.

The origin of index-rules is a patch by Eduardo Chappa:
http://www.math.washington.edu/~chappa/pine/info/rules.html

But I did not see an update from him regarding a crash with
index-rules defined.

Can you make a copy of the sent-mail folder which makes this
index-rule crash and remove e.g. the newer sent mails frim it
which were saved to it after it started crashing.

You can then also create a copy of your .pinerc where index-rules
is defined and active for the name of the copied sent-mail folder
and check if pine crashes with that folder using:

pine -x .pinerd.index-rules -f sent-mail.crashes

Maybe you can then delete any old messages which possibly
are not needed for the crash to occur, then you could isolate
the crash possibly to a single message, which you could send
to me confidentially. Maybe a long subject or recipient line
triggers the crash or a combination of mails, but I would
assume that it should be a single mail.

If I can reproduce it with your sent-mail folder,
I could do that filtering also if you have no time for that.

Alternatively you can also address Eduardo Chappa directly,
if the crash happens also with a pine which only has his
patches applied.

Updating the rules patch might theoretically help, bug 223629
tracks that possible improvement.
