Bug Description

This bug exists since 2010, see duplicate bug 647004 for Gnome 2.

I checked file-roller 3.6.3 with an Ubuntu Raring 13.04 Live-CD and it is still an issue.

file-roller displays files and folders in an archive as multi-column list. Clicking a column title sorts it ascending, clicking it again sorts it descending. It behaves like Nautilus, except that folders are never sorted by their date, even if the date column has been clicked.

I'd expect that files and folders are always sorted according to the same column, namely the last-clicked column that shows the small arrow to indicate the sort order.

Thank you for your bug report, can you describe exactly what you do to trigger the issue? On wily clicking on sorting by size seems to do that correctly, folders included
