Hi all,

I have a table where one column consists of inactive dates, such as this:

   | Date             | OK? |
   |------------------+-----|
   | [2009-01-30 Fri] | x   |
   | [2009-01-27 Tue] | x   |
   | [2009-01-28 Wed] | x   |

I can't sort the table by that column.  If I change the dates to active, then
sorting (by time) works fine.  Is this behavior intentional?

Yes, intentional, because the same routine also does sorting of
entries and should prefer active time stamps.  However, I realize that
we can still look for an inactive time stamp when no active one can be
found.   I just pushed this change.
