the list archive does not work with threads that span multiple months.
On the left of individual messages is supposed threading. This one is obviously incomplete compared to the messages delivered to my mailbox (the entire thread):
https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde3/2019-08/msg00002.html claims no further messages. The rest of the thread's messages seem to be in a new thread, which is not the case, only caused by the change in month:
https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde3/2019-09/msg00000.html continues the thread with unbroken references in headers, including the OP 848bc5fd-75b9-b413-aa1e-c8e926b0736b@....
