I've never had any problems at all with message threading
using xpn ....
Since I've always used Keep SubThread instead of Watch SubThread,
I have no personal experience with the watch flags ....
When using keep flags, new messages in a thread do have to be
toggled on, so perhaps the the watch flags behave the same ....
Such toggles are easily achieved by setting desired keystrokes
in the KeyBindings.py file found in the xpn_src dir ....

Fortunately, the groups I read including this one
have a very tolerable spam/content ratio although
it does fluctuate from time to time in some groups ....
Perhaps some design concepts/components from spambayes which is
also open source and python-based could be integrated with xpn
to help diminish spam problems ....
