Unexpected sort order in Create patch window

I already have mailed this to issues@tortoisesvn.tigris.org, while searching
for any progress on this matter I found that it probably should have been
sent to dev@tortoisesvn.tigris.org instead. Please bear with me for this
mistake.

I am about to provide a patch to an SVN repository. To find the files I want
to include in the patch easily I click on the "File" column header to change
the sort order in the Create patch window to sort in (in this case)
alphabetical ascending order. See the attached picture.

What happens then is that files are sorted in three areas. They appear in
the order of "Missing files" - red in the picture, "Modified files" - blue
in the picture and "Non-versioned files" - black in the picture. Within each
area, files are sorted in ascending/descending order depending on how many
times you click on the "File" column.

I would have expected that sorting would intertwine all three areas. That
is, when choosing to sort in alphabetical order, files from all three areas
would be mixed.

Suggestion:
I would like to see an option on this window (say a tick-box such as the one
I have added to the picture) where you have the possibility to
enable/disable whether sorting should be made intertwined between areas or
where the files from different areas remain separated as it is now.

Regards, Peter
