To my mind, one hijacks a thread when one replies to a message
and fails to change the subject. For example, you just hijacked the
code formatter thread by digressing into a discussion on thread
hijacking, and I am making it worse by responding to it.
GMail by default starts a new thread if the subject is different. There
probabaly is nothing *wrong* with your mail client, but you might
just check whether it has a user-selectable option that controls
how it presents threads.
