Bug Description

In the Web Client, when adding barcodes to Copy Buckets by scanning them into Pending Copies, they appear in the grid below in seemingly random order. In XUL they appear, unless another sort order is applied, in reverse order by time entered. The random ordering is problematic especially when trying to double-check a large number of items (for instance after being scanned from a book truck. The fact that the columns are not-sortable compounds the problem. I added a comment about the general sorting issue to bug 143710 leaving this bug for the random ordering upon entry.

Confirmed that the random order and the inability to sort on the Pending Copies tab are both still present in 3.1

Based on preliminary testing the order may not be random but may in fact be sorting based on call number in 3.1.

Our libraries would prefer that they appear in the order they were entered so staff can double check that no items were missed.

Additional testing in 3.1 suggests sort order is based on Copy ID. Our libraries would also prefer that they appear in the order they were entered.
