[Mono-devel-list] DataView.Sort behaves different on mono than Windows

In my new RSS Feed Aggregator for mojoportal, I have a
DataView named entries that I sort using:
entries.Sort = "PubDate DESC";

On Windows it sorts by date desc as expected, but
under mono 1.1.5 from svn on Suse 9.2 it sorts
descending on date but keeps things grouped together
by author so newer dated posts are not always on top.
The feed with the newest post shows first but then all
of its posts are shown next in date descending order
no matter if the other feeds have posts that are
newer, then the feed with the next newest post and so

I wonder if it has anything to do with the sequence of
columns in the DataTable underlying the DataView. In
my DataTable the PubDate field is the last column. I
may try some more experimentation and see if I can
find a workaround but I believe this is a bug and
thought I should mention it.
