[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Container lists re-ordering after saving

Hi Cate,

We have experienced the same problem. We have noticed a little bit of a
trend: the re-ordering mostly occurs after someone has gone back to a
component in the container list and edited it. Like you, after a user puts
the components in the correct order again they just scramble in a different
order. Oddly enough, I have been able to get the components to stick in the
right order by moving them around when I am in the "view" mode and not the
"edit" mode.

I would also be curious to know who else may be having this issue and if
they have been able to figure out an exact cause.

Has anyone encountered container lists in Resource records re-ordering as a
result of either saving or publishing a Resource?

There is no logic to the order of the resort (child records are staying
within the appropriate parent in the hierarchy, though).  If we open a
Resource with a scrambled list and put the list back in intended order and
save again, the list ends up back out of order (though not the same
scrambled order it was in before).

Another consequence of whatever is causing this activity is that we are no
longer to add children mid-list; ArchivesSpace forces all added components
to the bottom of the container list.

Thanks for any help with solving this.
