This is a bug in gmail that goes back to day 1.

Gmail took it upon itself to ignore the established standards and RFCs, and
only threads by topic, not actual thread.   Properly done, the email header
contains the id of the parent, and *that* is supposed to be used for
threading.

We had threading *long* before gmail, AOL, yahoo and the like reared their
wretched heads
