My Latest Threads: not informative
Currently the 'My latest threads' on the sidebar displays (1) my name and (2) how long ago the last reply was (underneath the title of the thread).
This is a bit confusing as I thought that having my name there meant I was the last person to post.
It seems the name is just based on who posted the thread.
Well, it's my latest threads, of course I posted it. Is this a bug?
How about show how many replies there have been and who did the last reply?
Good feedback, we can make that listing more informative.
Yes, +1 on placing who was the last who posted on the thread
Also can we have a column with subscribed threads which got updated after my post.
Good catch. For consistency, I would go for the same information as in the main view of the forums: "last reply A time ago by B" (maybe just "A -- B" for brevity).

+1.... jumping to the first "unread" post on the thread would make it even better (I have already suggested that for the "posts since last visit")
In addition I noticed it says for me under the "My latest threads" header: "You haven't posted anything in the forums yet - why don't you give it a go?", and it's obvious that I've posted 8 posts in the forum since it says it under my name.
Is this some variation of the same bug, or does it only list threads that you've started? (Which seems rather useless.)
Yes, it only lists threads you've posted, not replies.
It's so you can track the problems you've mentioned on forums and see if anyone has responded.
Like I said, seems rather useless since I'm an "answer questions" kind of guy. :)
The wording should probably change to something like “You haven’t asked any questions in the forums yet – why don’t you give it a go?”. Anyway, bug has been logged.
Well posts doesn't have to be questions. They could be lounge posts 'Does my phone look big?', they could be announcements 'Meego-based Z500 tablet released!' or they could be bugs or suggestions (such as this thread).
I think posts is fine. Maybe threads would be better though as there can be a bit of confusion between 'posts' and 'replies'.
Why not use "You haven't started a thread in the forums yet - why don't you give it a go?". It would be more clear what's meant.

The text is updated now, thanks :)

This bit has been changed now, it should read something like:
Groups beta, live and kicking, how to report bugs and suggestions
