I also sort by threads, but I select Unread Messages in the Show:
drop-down menu, so I always see the latest stuff.

My only quibble is that occasionally when I want to see a message in
context, selecting All Messages causes the message list to lose visual
focus, i.e. the current message is still selected but for some reason
the message list isn't showing it because the pane has relocated to the
top of the folder. The same thing happens when you reset a Search box.
