Win7 (64) Desktop "Sort by" broken?

My desktop icons are all shortcuts. When I try to sort by name, it doesn't
result in a correct sort.

I'm not in aero (using windows classic).

If I continually repeat "Sort by: Name" it toggles between two wrong
sorts!?!?

Sort works correctly in Windows Explorer.

It's beginning to piss me off so I thought I'd ask...

Anyone else? What could I be doing wrong?

I don't suspect the UI has anything to do with it. You don't assign the
sort function to the UI.

I did mention that windows explorer didn't suffer this sort issue.
