Hi Andreas,

it's some kind of history and a "strange" default behaviour of the tree 
tag... Just a easy fix which should workaround your problem:

- Create a PythonScript (just one line of code) in the Root of the ZMI 
with id = bobobase_object_position:

return context.aq_parent.objectValues().index(context)

- Then patch Zope/lib/python/App/dtml/menu.dtml and change

<dtml-tree nowrap=1>


<dtml-tree nowrap=1 sort=bobobase_object_position>

That's it...

Maybe you can fill out a collector issue?

Cheers, Maik
