Since you use a length of 1, I'm wondering why you'd care about
the ordering.
Or are you saying that when the 21 limit is reached it incorrectly keeps the
oldest 21 rather than the most recent 21?  That would indeed be a plain bug.

While 21 references is probably always overkill, 1 is not always enough,
because of the unreliability of the NNTP protocol as well as other effects
(e.g. when not all messages in a thread are sent to the same participants).
