This bug (as I see it) isn't limited to drag-and-drop actions. It happens as well when you select the files to attach from the dialog. The only workaround I found is to select the files one by one.

It would be nice to be able to change the order by hand and to have the attachments sorted automatically by clicking the column title in the composer. The default should be to keep the files' order as the user saw it when selecting them. This way you could already sort the files by a column in the selection dialog.

Why the order does matter?

- It looks ugly if you see files that obviously build a sequence in the wrong order.
- It makes sense to send files in a meaningful order (Overview.pdf, Day_1.pdf, Day_2.pdf, Day_3.pdf).
- I want to be in control of what my computer does. This is why I prefer Linux over MS Windows and KDE over Gnome. A reasonable default behaviour is nice as long as I can change it. A senseless behaviour like the shuffled attachments is bad even with the ability to interfere, worse whithout.

Should I open a new entry? I guess this bug and the wishes are of the category "keep on dreaming, we won't fix it". Too exotic. Wrong?
