It would be REALLY interesting to see the use case for a thread sorted by the
oldest date.
It is hard to imagine a sane user of threads wanting anything other than sort
by the most recent email in the thread.
Imagine that someone replies to a thread that is a few weeks old, after maybe
50 emails already filtered to the same mailbox.  Never seen, even if it might
be urgent to respond to.
It is indeed a major dysfunction.

Alternately, Claws could be fixed to sort threads by the most recent element. 
And avoid the user having to re-sort just because they changed from non-thread
to thread view.

Assuming that you want thread users to use Claws, of course ...
