I doubt I'll be able to help -- I don't use scoring, and most of my gnus
configurations seem to involve some degree of magical thinking.

Just for clarity, your desired setup, that goes "wonky", would look like

(setq gnus-thread-sort-functions

Is that right? So it's the 'gnus-thread-sort-by-date effect inside the
threads themselves that's going wrong? Wonky how?
