After some more trial and error, I've discovered that whenever a
followup post gets rejected, there are multiple values for the
"references:" header. I deleted all but one of them but the first on a
followup post and that allowed the post to succeed, but the followup got
associated with the wrong message.

I suppose I can just delete all but the last in the future, but this
definitely seems like a kludge. Has anyone else experienced problems
posting messages with multiple "references" values?
