while I like this (and it's the sort direction I usually use), I can't remember
how to kick off a default sort, and you can sort by just clicking on "Name", and
it will persist..

Alec, the sort seems to persist in the history window, but not the sidebar tab.

hrmm.. it persists ok for me in both the sidebar and the history window, build
2001052404, Win 2000

Yeah, it doesn't work for me on the same build, Win 98.  Maybe I'm doing
something wrong.  Here's what I'm doing:

1) opening history management window
2) from view menu, changing sort from A>Z to Z>A

This changes the order of the heirarchy in the management window, but not the
sidebar.

oh! no, the sort is per-window - i.e. the history window has it's own sort,
independant of the sidebar sort...you can click on the column headers to
initiate the sort in the sidebar
