I made that change (using the user's preferences) since I noticed that
comments on plugins (e.g. file management) were always displayed in
threaded mode, even so I have set my preferences to nested.

This and the above seems to indicate that the "current" mode gets lost
somewhere. So ideally, we want both - it should start with the user's
preferred mode, but when they change it (temporarily, in the comment
bar), it should of course use whatever has been selected from the comment bar.

That's certainly a nice thing to have (btw, I'd also like to have this in
the forums, so that I can link to one specific post).

The first issue is a bug and should be fixed in 1.3.9. The second one is
an improvement and should wait for 1.3.10. Especially since it will no
doubt require changes in other places, too (e.g. search should use it,
may require changes in template files, ...).
