This isn't the case under thunderbird. Assuming you still have the 
referenced emails this _shouldn't_ be the case. I've noticed some 
programs are better than others at tracking a thread.

Of course I'm not saying this isn't happening to you, just that it 
doesn't happen here. I am a little surprised it breaks under gmail, 
though if somebody said they were using outlook web access I wouldn't 
batter an eyelid.
