Hmmm?  Jane?  Arbitrator?  How about Jim McKenney's query here?  Etiquette?
There's ambiguity in the nature of the problem.  If it's corrected.. is it 
still the subject. Disambiguate please --as in a big Wikipedia

Note that Jim Shields did not change the spelling on the subject line,  but
he did use the correct spelling in his text. That is what I would have done.

I've asked this question before and so far have not gotten a good answer: if
in replying one has changed the spelling of a word on the subject line, will
that effect search results which use the original misspelling?   Uncertainty
about this has made me reluctant to correct misspellings on the subject
