There's couple of problems here:

Not all mail/news readers track exclusevly via Message-ID, References and
In-Reply-To headers.  Some don't even generate/update optional References and
In-Reply-To.  Some will start brand new thread each time Subject changes, even
if they otherwise follow References and In-Reply-To.

Whenever you changed subject line, you went totally off-topic (meaning, you
should have not posted to the list at all).  Please, don't generate 
chaos. While chaos might be natural state of universe, it shouldn't be 
the natural
state of this particular mailing list.
