Can anything be done about this? Perhaps mailers should

Most people, perhaps my mother excluded, will change the subject
line.  This can be a simple test for a MUA to ask the user if they
want to continue the previous thread.

In fact, that's exactly what thios one already does. It says something  
like "Subject changed - keep threading? Yes/No".

  "An MUA SHOULD NOT generate a Reply-To/References header to a message
   if the sender has modified the subject of the message."

Too strong.
