ok, my last try: imagine your summary window has a lot of different
threads. You want to delete the old ones, let say 10 of them. Isn't
more convenient to colapse all threads, then select the ones you want
to supprim then press SUPPR and you're done ?
What is the *default* behaviour in this case ? after selecting the old
threads you want to delete, you press SUPPR and .... tada... only the
root of each thread is deleted... wonderful !
BTW, this is also true for others operations such as copy, move etc..
