if you're viewing a message that has "Recent messages in this thread", and 
click on a link for one of the messages, you'll be taken to the wrong 
message - typically in a completely different thread.

Yup; this is a pretty well-known bug. Web-News is old & rather on the terrible side; I would suggest using a newsreader.

The nice thing about havng a (working) web-based one, though, (aside from 
being usable on a public web terminal), is that you can run searches against 
the entire archive without having to download every message.
