No, it shouldn't.

This is a current topic on another list I read. See this recent  
explanation I made:

In the threaded list of messages you can see threading is maintained  
even through changed subject lines:

See how the "[X4U] how to play all podcasts?" changes into "[X4U]  
Migrate without Firewire link." and "[X4U] Re: hijacking threads".  
The thread breaks only with the replies from jelmore & Wendy S.  
Austin - I'm pretty sure this is because their email clients are (web- 
based and?) broken and not retaining the "References: " headers when  
they reply.
