No, you did hijack the thread. Simply changing the Subject line is not
enough to start a new thread. Threading is determined by the In-Reply-To
mail header, so any reply to a list message is regarded as part of the
same thread, even if the Subject is completely different.
Take a look at the list archive at
search for your original message. You'll see it's nested within the
conversation about "Fedora 8 won't remember bluetooth mouse, hidd not
running by default", meaning you created it by replying to one of those
messages instead of by creating a new one. That's what hijacking means,
and people object to it precisely because it screws up the layout of
conversations (threads) in many mail clients.
