In other words, Opera is working as designed and there is no bug. You two seem to be assuming that a thread should either be expanded or collapsed, whereas the ability to expand only a subthread is very useful when dealing with long threads and I'd hate to see it taken away as the result of fixing this "bug".

There is no such concept as a 'subthread'. You can't specify which part of a thread should remain collapsed and which should not. The current misbehaviour is totally counter-intuitively based on the time and order in which messages arrive, factors totally out of reach for user control. Therefore, there is no 'ability' or 'feature' here, just a bug.

One major annoyance with current behaviour is that it is not always visible to the user if part of a thread is still collapsed, which can lead users to miss messages. That can't possibly be by design.
