This is a rather anoying regression, it used to work fine in Sunbird 0.7. Now the user either need to restart the application or to change the sort order twice to restore the correct order.
I have this same problem, but also, when I delete tasks, the screen does not update to drop the task from the list. If I exit the task screen by switching to the Mail or Calendar screens and then come back, it correctly shows the task list.
(In reply to comment #4) Sounds like Bug 404039 that ought to be fixed in current 1.0pre nightly test builds already.
I cannot reproduce this. For me it is fixed.
