Educational moment:

Emails are not threaded merely by subject, but by an internal header 
that reads something like this

Message-ID: <1288118915666-1775907.post at n3.nabble.com>
In-Reply-To: <4F9441CBB35E4377B19A0EDF1A121C21 at mail2world.com>

These are how most conforming mail clients (read: email programs like 
Thunderbird or Outlook Express) identify threads.  Thus, even though you 
changed the subject, you were responding to the same thread.

I don't know what mail client you use, but if there is an option to 
"view source" or "view headers" in your interface, you can see what I'm 
talking about.  Alternatively, you can see how Mailman has threaded your 
message in the list archives:

  -> Search "[Libreoffice] [PATCH] EasyHack: Fixes"

This has implications for those of us who prefer to read threaded 
conversations in our mail clients, and for those who read archived 
messages on line.  In short, please start a new thread by starting a new 
thread, not by replying to a message and merely changing the subject.

Cheers, and thanks for your warnings patch,
