It sorts into the thread you replied to in Mail.app, so it apparently  
uses two items: the in reply to header, and the title (to help with  
broken mail clients I guess).

On the other hand, I can miss threads that change the subject, because  
they end up in a thread I decided I was no longer interested in, and  
mark as read without further checking. If such a thread is a genuine  
help request that I know the answer to, then someone seeking help may  
miss out on a valid answer.
