Thanks, you are right :) I don't quite understand this in the code, but
the effect is really nice. When switching back and forth I get my sort
method preserved, but when switching to categories or similar I get
the default. Its a bit of a mystery why this is given that I can't see
any bit in the code that resets user_definied_sort_method once its
changed, but I'm too tired today to think about this more.

Thanks again!
