Package: phpgroupware-todo
Version: 0.9.16.011-2.2
Severity: normal


When there are more lines in the current selection than shown in one screenfull,
sorting is doing strange things.
(when there all lines from the selection fit in one screen, sorting does not
do a thing at all, but that is not much of a problem).

When I hit the 'priority' column title, the order of the todo items change, but
it does not group all low, medium and high priority todos together.

I've tried somewhat to figure out what might be wrong:
1. Selecting only todos from one category does not make it better (thinking that
   the items from one category might always be grouped).
2. Also the highest-level todo items are not ordered properly (thinking that child
   todos might be always grouped with their parents)

At least the sort is deterministic. Hitting priority sorts in some order. Hitting
it again changes the order (but does NOT reverse it). Hitting it yet again changes
back to the first order.

The sorting does not work properly for status, priority, title, start date (didn't
test end date, owner)

I'm using mysql (on a different machine) and ldap (on yet another machine; the same
ldap tree is also used to authentication of imap and other things). Both of these
are also debian etch, amd64.

Thanks for reporting this bug.

It seems upstream agrees sorting is broken (see thread at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/phpgroupware-users/2006-11/msg00005.html), but there is no fix available it seems for 0.9.16.* versions.

This issue has been forwarded in upstream tracker at : https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?22764

Don't expect any fix soon, then.
