Yeah, it'll do that. If patchwork sees an email that doesn't contain a patch, 
or that it can't correlate with an existing patch, the email will be ignored.

Working-around this would require keeping all 'potential' follow-ups, which we 
don't do at the moment. I'm not sure this is a good idea in general...
