In the News reader, if I change the ordering to Date-Descending, the display
changes to "Ignore Threads". I never told it to ignore threads, I only told it
to sort by Date-Descending. It should keep the threads unexpanded and order by
thread origin, Date-Descending. If a message does not have replies it is still
considered a "thread origin" for sorting.

BTW, every other mail/news reader that I know of works as described above.

Actually, I think this is a user mistake. Sorting by Thread - Descending seems
to sort, with threads collapsed, by date descending of thread origin. Although I
still get a few messages not in order, this is ok, and this is the view I am
looking for.
