because the sender hit reply and then changed the subject line to
something different. By doing that his mail client used the
"in-reply-to" header like this:

In-Reply-To: <9bf66aa00507021601225bee77 at mail.gmail.com>

The message with ID 9bf66aa00507021601225bee77 at mail.gmail.com was about
Ripping CD's, so most email clients thread the message about "drive
layout" below the message about "Ripping CD's", which is a PITA.

So yes the message was approriate to its "subject" header, but not
appropriate to its "In-Reply-To" header.

Just a netiqutte thing really.
