Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a new news message with the same subject line as an existing item Actual Results: The message gets appended to the already existing thread Expected Results: A new top-level subject would be created
If this helps, it it case sensitive. This might be a news server problem, the same bug occurs Outlook Express.
If it's the same as in 2003112203 (Mac OS X), and indeed the same as most newsreaders AIUI, then it merely _displays_ the posts in one thread. It is not _posted_ to the same thread, as you can confirm by looking at the source and noticing that there is no References header. Is this the behaviour you're experiencing? If so, you are hereby referred to bug 164115. Dupe?
One more hint: This also happens in TB0.4 for mails. E.g. messages with - no subject - "Re:" as subject end up in the same thread regardless what the header line "In-Reply-To:" says.
