The problem is not the original patch (the patch for the master), it
works perfectly and Kohei did a fantastic job with it and its
complementary patch which added the configuration option allowing the
choose between the new behavior and the former. Thank you very much for

The issue is in the decision to backport the first patch without the
configuration option (fdo#81309 only) to 4.3.1 and 4.2.7 as if this
former behavior was completely broken. Ok, it is not perfect but many
spreadsheets are build on this behavior since many years. With 4.3.2 and
4.2.7 all these spreadsheets do not work anymore and the users have to
heavily modify the logic of their spreadsheets if they want to continue
to use sort with references. Please try the test file in bug 81633
yourself. Compare sorting in 4.2.6 and in 4.2.7 or the master (with the
new behavior).

For me (and I am not alone to think that, see the growing number of
duplicates of bug 81633), such big change should be done only for a
x.y.0 version with a clear information in the release notes.

Best regards.
