It's an illusion that your client creates due to the settings you have
chosen.  (His message appears in this thread because the subject is
the same.  It appears according to sent date and time.  This will
often create the wrong position in a thread.)  His message doesn't
contain the necessary headers to do proper threading.  In particular,
there is no In-Reply-To or References header in his message.  Indeed,
your message correctly includes these headers, but fails to reference
his message, Message-ID: <20131201143218.102640 at gmx.com>.  Your own
client doesn't know Patrick's message is part of this thread.
