 The album sort order as it stands purely groups albums together, but sorts
 the albums in random order.  It looks like the code intended to sort the
 albums in order of artist/album title.  I have corrected the code so that
 it does that.

 To test, apply the patch, select album shuffle mode, and review the info
 on some tracks to verify that the playlist has been sorted correctly.

 Like all the current shuffle modes, this has undesirable side effects if
 you have elected to display the full music tree in your main mythmusic
 page.  I still want to fix that sometime.

 This code actually displays in artist/album order, which means that albums
 with multiple artists within them will not group correctly.  I will
 separately apply a new shuffle mode that sorts purely by album.
