I've tried to reply to the list twice now with no effect... my emails
are getting lost.

Anyway, third time lucky hopefully:

The quote was necessary.  Without the quote, the setting was ignored.

In any case, I found the solution.  This variable,


controls the behaviour I wanted to change.  It is not a customisable
variable which is why I didn't find it immediately.  It is set to sort
by number; I changed it to sort by date and I'm a happy camper.
