After having created a new user group it is at the bottom of the list rather than being sorted in correct order. When saving after editing it to add privileges it returns to the a different group. Such as the one that after list sorting is in the position the new group was previously in.

Is it your expectation that the list of groups displayed by system_groupmanager.php should be sorted alphabetically? That does not seem to be the case with 2.2.x - or I am I failing to understand that?

Second part of the issue (returns to different group) is confirmed.

Have no expectation regarding the list order. My expectation is not to be returned to one of the other groups instead of the one I was editing. First time it happened it was like where did the changes just made go. Then realized it had returned to a different group.

OK thanks. There was a usort in system_usermanager_addprivs that was causing this. I assume the intention was to sort the groups on adding a new group, not a new priv so I have moved the usort to system_groupmanager and it now seems to work more sensibly. Please confirm

Thanks for the report.
