If you do a query that results in a list of bugs, and click on the link on one of
the column headers, then the list is redisplayed sorted by that column.

However, next time you generate the same list, it reverts to being sorted by (I
think) the ID column (the first one).

Actually, at the bottom of the query page there is a "Sort by" field.  It uses
that.

I agree this UI is not very good.
Yeah, I don't think remembering is the right way to go, since it prevents
bookmarking of the exact state.  Better to allow full selection on the query
screen.

But full selection on the query page is hard (because you can actually set up
secondary sorts by clicking on one column, and then another.)

Instead, I have added a cookie which remembers the last sort order you used.  If
that cookie is present, then the query page shows a new sort option, "Reuse same
sort as last time", and that option will be set by default.
