+After digging into XSLT implementation I found that xsl:sort works if
+it does not contain current() function. Actually current mono approach
+is not sufficient to handle current() function inside xsl:sort since
+it is processed as XPathExpression.AddSort(), and the sort elements
+are evaluated without proper "current node" context. Thus it always
+evaluates current node context as its parent's.
+To make proper fix, I will have to put sort functionality besides
+XPathExpression.AddSort(). It might not be fixed soon, but hopefully
+within a few days.
