Change subject line

Many times after attempting a second post to a thread have got this error message

"You already have a follow-up listed with the same subject. If you didn't see your message listed, you probably need to reload the page.

If you want to submit another follow-up to the same message, please change the subject line."

Which although it makes no sense to me I have always successfully addressed by changing its title and resubmitting. But last time I still got the same error message so was unable to post further to that thread. Is the title not the subject line

Thank you Zoo for that hint, it's reassuring that I'm not the only victim of this glitch
