I'm resubmitting the closed bug (312252) because it is still reproducible in VS2008, and a bit annoying.

[I suspect that in the "GlobalSection(NestedProjects) = preSolution" section of the .sln file, the projects are included in the order they were added to the folder, and not in alphabetical order. VS does the sort if and when some 'ordering' event occurs (i.e., renaming a project, moving a project, or (strangely) if you collapse the Solution Folder before closing VS, when you open it again afterwards, they are sorted (closing and opening the folder with VS open doesn't work).]

I just got 4 simultaneous updates that (I think) went like this:

Field Status changed from [Closed] to [Active] to [Resolved] to [Closed]
Field Resolution changed from [Not Set] to [Fixed] to [Won't Fix]

Can someone please explain what that means?
