Some perceived this as a bug. Others never noticed. The moment it got
"fixed", I started complaining as nothing worked as *I* expected it to
work. The "fix" broke *my* workflow in a way that would make me leave

As that patch broke my workflow, it was the easiest action to take:
just revert what was causing my grief, regardless of what it might fix
(that never bothered me obviously).

the CM developers think the only sane way of sorting threaded view is
having the newest last. Fine with me, but that is not how I work. I
want the newest on top. Period. You may call that weird or stupid or
whatever, but I have worked like that since many many years and am not
planning to change. I am under the impression that I am not the only

Or revert the fix to some bug that we do not see as such. It *is* open
source and git is your/my friend.
