[squeak-dev] reason why HelpBrowser does not respect page order on display? Fix? Bug? or Feature?

I found the culprit.

HelpBrowser openOn: FooHelp.   ends up about three sends later in

HelpBrowser >> rootTopic: aHelpTopic

rootTopic: aHelpTopic

"set the root topic and work out the top level sub-topics that it implies. Add the search topic at the end of the list"

rootTopic := aHelpTopic asHelpTopic.

self toplevelTopics: ((rootTopic ifNil: [#()] ifNotNil: [rootTopic subtopics]) sorted, {self searchTopic}).

self toplevelTopics: ((rootTopic ifNil: [#()] ifNotNil: [rootTopic subtopics ifEmpty: [{rootTopic}]]) sorted, {self searchTopic}).

self changed: #windowTitle.

When I remove that "sorted" I get the results I expect.

However....when I go to the top bar Help->SqueakHelp   it reverts back to the "incorrect" behavior.

gonna hunt that down next.
