Unsure when, or if ever, this problem will be addressed.
Going to postpone it for now. Item does not seem to have
many users demanding for a fix.

May tag this as a "Known Limitation" in the future and
close it if no additional movement is done for this item.

OPEN: The problem is that a listing for a message in a thread index is not "fixed" due to how threads are organized. Non-related messages can move the location of a message listing, but currently MHonArc is unable to detect this. A possible solution is to compare old ordinal location with new ordinal location for each message. If different, see if new position cause message to move to another index page. If so, mark message to be edited. This kind of check would cause a performance hit, but it may be unavoidable inorder to fix the
