Hello Racke,

I have put the results and that what I expect already in my original
posting.  The sample of anomaly shows exactly what is wrong and what I
do expect.  To reproduce and to understand the problem it would help
a lot to do the steps I describe below.  It is really difficult to
write down the problem, it's much easier to understand if you see it.

Description of anomaly:
The search results on my results page are grouped by category.  If I do a
search the order of sorting is in exactly one special case not correct.
The shop is based on foundation demo.

This isn't correct:
If the first hit of a specific category is the last entry in the list of
hits on the first page, this hit is not sorted.

I expect:
I expect always a sorted output.

1. sample of anomaly:
Please go to http://disch-systems.de and provide no search specification
to the search box and hit search (German "SUCHEN").  Now, keep care of the
product with the SKU "EIPM00/N208D" that should be on the bottom of the
results page.  It should be the first in the category
"Konverter (Ethernet)", but you see some other product.  If you choose
results page 2 ("Seite 2") and you go back to page 1, it is there.

2. sample:
Now, in the location line of your browser change "mv_matchlimit=10" to
"mv_matchlimit=2" and keep care of the SKU "DGWIP0/1G00F" (on the first
position of the second category).  Try again this empty search by
submitting this URL.

Result: "DGWIP0/1G0PC" - that's again not right.
I expect "DGWIP0/1G00F" on the second place (i.e. the first in this
specific category AND the last on this specific results page)

3. More samples:
You can try many more examples, search for "netcube" and set the
"mv_matchlimit=1", first result isn't "EIPM00/N208D".

Where to start to solve this odd problem?

With best regards

   Uwe Disch
