"View > Sort by > Threaded" disregards unified "Subject:" entries

Newsgroups with lots of messages show several identical "Subject" groups in the List Pane.

Technically, these messages are correctly "Threaded" by the original content of the message's "Subject:" field.

Example of observed bahavior:
...
[+] Re: Subject1
- message source 'Subject:' is "Re: Subject1"
[+] Re: Subject1
- message source 'Subject:' is "Re: RE:Subject1"
[+] Re: Subject1
- message source 'Subject:' is "Re: Re: Subject1"
...

For an End-User (like me) it is disturbing to see a "Threaded view" with identical subjects displayed, with seemingly randomly grouped-together message blocks.

Example of expected behavior:
...
[+] Re: Subject1
- message source 'Subject:' is "Re: Subject1" or "Re: RE:Subject1" or ...
...

Question(s): Did I overlook a setting? Can I switch this behavior? Is this an artifact from upgrading from TB2 to TB3?

Thanks! -Hagen
