That's interesting because it's the wrong way round :-)

My gut feel hunch is that sorting inside ProcessHistory() isn't working
properly since the perl upgrade; the code is randomly reordering things
whereas what's in show run is already consistent.

However I don't see anything in that sub or the sorting routines that
5.18 would complain about.

We'd probably need a sample of your show run to properly debug further
as this looks awfully like a data issue
