That is clearly Gmail's thinking, since it does indeed sort on 
subject - "conversation".  I don't like it and much prefer threading by id, 
which I find very readable by this human.  

KMail on my machine is playing up this morning, but by that I mean that I am 
having more trouble than usual getting it to do what I want it to.  If this 
state of affairs continues, I shall obviously have to do something about it; 
so that I can stay in control and not be taken over by the machine.
