'Assigned to' list sorts by id, not name
When assigning issues to users, finding the right person in the drop down list can be more time consuming than it should - as the list grows it appears as a mess. The truth is that it's not a mess, but sorted by id - this does not make sense to a user ;-)
I have attached patches for 0.7.3, but the behavior is the same in subversion (r1709). The patches will sort by (first) name instead of id.
Please let me know if you need more information etc.

Attached is a patch (with tests) that make user sorted a system setting. In Administration > Settings > General is an option to sort users by first name, last name, or login. This will affect assignment boxes like the patch above and also the sorting on a Projects member page.
