	No

! in fact, I'm not really sure how they're being sorted... 

	Change into the start/ directory and issue 'find . -type f | xargs
touch' , and that should get them back to sorting Alphabetically.  The
sorting method is controlled in the look.name file by -

# [0/1] Sort Start menu entries by 1=alphabetical order, 0=date (default)
StartMenuSortMode 0
