Personally, I use the Movies and New Titles lists most often. In both 
of these cases, it's invariably better to default to sorting by 
title, because there are simply too many duplicate showings to make 
the lists useful otherwise.

So, what about storing the settings separately for each search type? 
Yes, it's a little more work, but I do agree that it would be more 
intuitive. I'd be willing to write this patch if it will be accepted.
