Gmail doesn't do proper message threading like other email clients who
do it properly e.g. thunderbird or evolution.

A constant problem I had with emails from the bugs mailing list was
gmail splitting the same bug report-related emails into two different
threads (really conversation is a more appropriate word here) after a
keyword is changed e.g. adding NEEDINFO to the report. Thunderbird
would group messages based on email headers so it go it'd get it

Quoting from http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=5900 :
“Please note that a conversation will break off into a new thread if
the subject line of the conversation is changed, or if the
conversation reaches over 100 messages.”

IIUC, any email client that does proper threading changing the subject
line wouldn't break the thread.

Of course this has an upside, when the thread is broken for other
clients, gmail just works as it's taking the simple/stupid approach of
grouping messages that have the same subject line (that is IIUC :)).
