Yes, you're right. The code already does use the Sort property in the place 
that matters (UpdateIndex), so it'd really be better to change get_Sort to 
return String.Empty if useDefaultSort is true. I'll change that and send in 
the new patch tomorrow.

Do you really think the work is worth the hassle for such an obvious error ? I 
agree that tests that demonstrate the bug are a Good Thing (tm), which is why 
I've included one with my patch for the ListChanged event in DataView, but, 
ya know... I'm lazy ;-)
