Threaded comments display out of order if conditions are met.

In Wordpress 2.7, threaded comments have a built in limitation that determines how many levels of comment nesting are allowed. This prevents users from replying to messages that are at the nested limit.
The admin interface has no such limitation. Admins are able to reply to messages that are at the nested level limit.
When this happens, comments begin appearing (for all intents and purposes) out of order.
This can also be caused by changing the nested level to a smaller number after comments exist.
Examples of this problem are linked to in this discussion:
