Assignee & Author Dropdown Sort

Resolution: Affected version:4.1.1


In Redmine 4.1.1.stable, the Assignee and Author dropdowns seems to be in a random order.
Redmine plugins:
redmine_agile 1.5.3
redmine_issue_dynamic_edit 0.7.2
In the "Issues" tab, we add "Assignee", and see:
active (in bold)
(a list of users in what seems like a random order)
locked (in bold)
(a list of locked users in what seems like a random order)

Desired: A way to default the sort by first name, last name. About 100 users show in our dropdown, it is difficult to find the right person. We recently upgraded to 4.1.1 from version 2.something.

I tried looking in Administration, Settings, Display, and have "Users display format" in "First Last" setting.
The dropdown does display the names in First Last format.

They just are in the wrong order. They are not sorted by Last Name. They are not sorted by First Name. They are not sorted by Login. They are not sorted by creation date.

Please advise.

We use Redmine daily and really like it.
Thank you!
