[I think]
It means that mutt thinks the message belongs in the thread, but it
doesn't know where in the thread it belongs.  This can be caused by
deleting messages from the thread so that the message doesn't exist to
draw ASCII art arrows from, or because the poster has a broken MUA.

:-).  It is (now) one of my requirements for a MUA to be considered
halfway decent.
