User-Agent:       Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux i686; U; en-GB) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100423 Thunderbird/3.0.4

I view my mail sorted by date, and threaded.  The threaded messages display in the wrong order - the first message in the thread should be at the top of the tree (and be the message still showing when threads are collapsed) but instead it appears as a branch somewhere in the middle.  One of the replies gets "promoted" to the top of the tree.

The problem seems to occur when a thread is moved from the inbox to another folder.  It displays OK on initial receipt in the inbox, breaks in the other folder, and remains broken if moved back to the inbox.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with an unthreaded folder sorted however you like.
2. View - Sort by - Date
3. View - Sort by - Threaded

Actual Results:  
Messages within threads in the wrong order.

Expected Results:  
The first message in the thread should be displayed as the first message in the thread, with any replies following it.

Linux-specific: does not occur on my other computer running TB3.0.4 on Windows 7.

TB3-specific, I think: never had this problem before.

Screenshot of the bug happening.

A crudely-redacted screenshot of one of my mail folders, showing this bug.  I've marked the first message in the thread (me, starting off an email conversation with friend J) with a red dot.  As you can see, it is not being displayed first in the thread.

Elements of 595484 and 745810 certainly seem similar.
