Planned For - Iteration displays in Alphabetical order

We have our iterations in the name Jan-13, Feb-13 and so on until Dec-12. The order is maintained in this desired way under the Timeline section. But when we try to choose the iteration against the "Planned For" attribute in a work item, it sorts to an alphabetical format automatically.

How can we get rid of this behavior and retain the same order as seen in the Timeline section?

I don't think this is possible. Most controls sort the Iterations alphabetically. The All Plans View sorts it by End date.

We have monthly sprints. To sort them we use another notation:

"2012.01" , "2012.02" etc.

If  people like to see also the written month you can extend this by "2012.01 (Jan)", etc.

When we upgraded to from, this problem was automatically fixed.
