What's your client? I'm using Thunderbird, and it too doesn't have any idea.

I see that Bob's email does have an In-Reply-To header:

In-Reply-To: <CAM9vinNG0z-7zBgyiaOrL0d+n6bNStB3_RSbbAgEoe0UfNc3Vg at mail.gmail.com>

and if I look at the email which started this thread, Keitaro Kaoru's email 
with no subject line, I see it has the same message ID:

Message-ID: <CAM9vinNG0z-7zBgyiaOrL0d+n6bNStB3_RSbbAgEoe0UfNc3Vg at mail.gmail.com>

so my guess is that Thunderbird is just stupid.
