[Pan-users] Random order in "Cache Article" (0.120)

There was some discussion/complaints/bug-reporting about how new-pan
saved articles in random order rather than first-to-last (or
last-to-first:-). I didn't follow it too closely, but it seems to be
fixed now - however the "Cache Article" function still processes
articles in random order, which I personally find much more annoying.

I tend(ed) to use "Cache Article" as a workaround for Pan's lack of
read-ahead, i.e. select and cache a range of articles that I know that I
will read, so as to not have to wait for the download when going to the
next article - with the random processing this is almost useless, as you
may well have to wait for *all* the articles to download before you can
go to the "next" one (Murphy will do his best to make sure it's the last
one downloaded:-).

Anyway, I filed a bug with patch for this, #393912 - hopefully it can
sneak in before 1.0 since it's quite straightforward.
