Same Problem here:

Karmic 9.10, Kernel 2.6.31-17 on amd64, Gnome 2.28.1

Similar for me, but not identical. First track is placed last.

If the track should be spliced in the order A-B-C-D, the resulting burn would be B-C-D-A

I used the "splice into fixed number of tracks" option (I'm not exactly sure of the wording - no access right now)

Karmic, amd64, not sure of Kernel or gnome info (not at home right now) - but updated system may 2010.

Also seeing the same issue as in comment #2.

I use the "split track into a fixed number of parts" to split a 41 minute audio track into 4 parts. The parts 1,2,3,4, will be burnt onto the CD in the order 2,3,4,1.

Running 9.04 Karmic, amd64, 2.6.32-23-generic, using package 2.30.1-0ubuntu2.

I also remember seeing the same problem when using xfburn on my previous Arch Linux amd64 system, so maybe its a problem with a library shared between both xfburn and brasero.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.

I can confirm this bug:

Ways to reproduce it....

Select a FLAC or MP3 file to burn as Audio CD.
Select Split Track...

- If you split the track by number of parts, the FIRST part will be the last track. All other tracks counting from second will be ordered correctly.

- If you split the track by fixed time lenght, you get the same behaviour above, PLUS, the probability of getting STATIC NOISE TRASH AUDIO on all tracks (a problem on decoding side I believe).

- Generally it doesn't find any silence when you want to have it split a "cd image" with silences between tracks.

- And I observed that playing back the track in this dialog is broken...

This happening to me on : Ubuntu 11.04 + All updates applied up to 14/Aug/2011.
This is also happening in Fedora 15 with Gnome Shell, with all updates applied, as of 15/Aug/2011.
