If not sorted at all, listed as they arrive, the threads are in good
order. For example the date on 
Orn's mail as received just now is:
Date: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Mi=F0,?= 03 Sep 1997 23:00:14 +0200 (CET DST)

My "Received" time is:    Thu, 4 Sep 1997 06:00:09 (Western Australia)

My clock is undoubtedly permanently and irretrievably "mis-set" :)
I think no-one really wants all dates in GMT.

cheers, clare
