I have to admit that I never compared dates.  I even don't show them in
summary buffers...

Phew, dunno how this could happen.  Maybe somehow by setting
gnus-summary-thread-gathering-function to gnus-gather-threads-by-subject
and posters with wrong dates?  But that's only a blind guess...

I use

      (setq gnus-fetch-old-headers 'some)
      (setq gnus-build-sparse-threads nil) ;; the default

and never tried other values of the latter.
