The bug report (dated 4 Nov 2002) states:

     Hi, pipermail screws up threading in case that two messages
     which were sent at the same time both start a new thread.
     New messages to either thread are then only listed below.

     The problem is that threadKey in a thread starting message
     is only a function of message Date, nothing else.

     It may not happen that often in human communication that
     two messages are written at the very same time, but it
     happens with a lot of cron generated output here.

Does this problem exists in the SourceForge distribution?
