I know that Netscape, when faced with messages without correct threading
information, will try to group the messages by subject while ignoring
the "Re:" part, which works for "normal" MUAs, but not for your
localized one, thinking that the messsages with the "SV:" in front of
the subject were of a different thread.

Maybe the fact that your MUA *knows* about the meaning of "SV:" means it
can kludge together unthreaded e-mails, much like Netscape can. But this
is not real threading, a "reply to a reply" will go with the "original"
message, not with the "reply" as it should...

Try answering to this post both via e-mail and via newsgroup (identify
them as such)? We'll see which one threads and which one doesn't...
