The other day I went to delete a couple of SMS threads in Handcent but when I did so it did not remove them from the list. It simply cleared them and moved them to the bottom of my handcent screen and dated them dec 31, 1969. I tried removing handcent today and deleting them from the stock message app and it did not work. Any thoughts? I did just up date to .5.9.902. No root.

I have had similar problems with MMS messages but on my OG Droid and only after restoring them from MyBackup Pro.
When I needed to update to a new revision of the custom ROM on my OG Droid I would backup my SMS and MMS using MyBackup Pro, flash the new update, then restore messages.
My MMS would do something similar to what you describe, I would delete a message and it would still show up in the list, in both Handcent and stock apps. They could not be deleted, in fact, trying to get info about them would cause Handcent to FC every time and the stock app did nothing at all when I long pressed on the message. I eventually figured out every time I tried to delete the offending message it was actually deleting a different message.
I never found a complete solution, I just stopped restoring MMS messages.
I did notice that eventually, the offending messages disappear on their own, presumably when a thread reached the preset maximum number of messages and the system began deleting the oldest ones first.
