Mine are ordered that way too.

Actually I think Carsten fixed that
thing-I-thought-was-a-bug-but-you-thought-was-a-feature.  At least it
doesn't do that for me anymore.

I'm using the new org-agenda-follow-indirect feature with this patch
(http://patchwork.newartisans.com/patch/1004/)...  and the idea is to
get a somewhat minimal view of the item.  I don't want to open the whole
thing.  But I can understand why nobody else would be calling for this
feature since probably I'm the only one using org-agenda-follow-indirect
ATM.
