"Date" column in the thread pane

When in threaded view, the "date" column in the thread pane displays the 
date the thread started, not the date the latest message arrived. This 
is very confusing since the sort order takes the date of the last 
message into account instead, which results in dates displayed not 
matching the sort order.

I guess it was done for convenience reasons, such as having the property 
that the first line when the thread is expanded is also the same line 
for when the thread is collapsed.

So I was thinking about fixing this right away in nsMsgDbView.cpp 
instead of doing some ugly hack in Thunderbird Conversations, but I 
thought there might be good reasons not to do so.
