Maybe the order in the thumbnail viewer got broken, try choosing all images, 
and choose "View->Sort selected by date and time", which will reorder them.

| All your image dates will be updated."

| In this particular case, the camera used had an incorrect date (in 2008).

| Is there a new method to get the images shown in the the correct order,
| using the Capture/Original/Digitized date?
