There are two ways to build threads: by reference and by same subjects.
Gathering by subjects is the default in Gnus nowadays.

Hm, not sure what might be the culprit.  But what is `new-message' good
for, i.e., what does it do that C-x m (`compose-mail') with
`mail-user-agent' set to `gnus-user-agent' wouldn't also do?
