Also, if you've been bitten by added entries to complexity you'll recall that their ID are numeric strings.  Even when sorting those they don't order correctly (unless converted to integer values).

                <enumeration attributeTypeId="complexity" name="complexity">
                    <literal default="true" id="0" name="0 pts"/>
                    <literal id="1" name="1 pt"/>
                    <literal id="2" name="2 pts"/>
                    <literal id="3" name="3 pts"/>
                    <literal id="5" name="5 pts"/>
                    <literal id="8" name="8 pts"/>
                    <literal id="13" name="13 pts"/>
                    <literal id="20" name="20 pts"/>
                    <literal id="40" name="40 pts"/>
                    <literal id="100" name="100 pts"/>
                </enumeration>

sort alphabetically is: 

0
1
100
13
2
20
3
40
5
8

Just hit this wall/obstacle/speedbump. Following links to see if there's a workaround.

This kind of issue is caused by sorting feature is sorting by id instead of name.

well, its really cause the sorting is alphabetical, and not numerical. Both id and name would produce improper sorting as compared to numerical.
