You should have gotten a logged error message, looking at the code. The
current implementation of INN's header parsing only works with headers
that the parsing code knows about, and In-Reply-To isn't on that list.
It's a serious frustration with that code right now (it also affects the
Perl filter), but we've not gotten a chance to fix it.
