[mythtv-users] Watch List not considering season/episode order?

I use the Watch List feature in MythTV Watch Recordings, which I believe 
is supposed to show you the next episode that should be watched in all 
your shows. However, I've recently realised that it isn't always showing 
me the correct next episode. Before I open this as a bug, I wanted to 
check my understanding of it, as I couldn't find anything in the 
documentation about how exactly the Watch List feature works.

At the moment, I think it is showing me the earliest recorded unwatched 
episode in each show. However, often shows here (in UK, especially 
repeats of series like CSI on Channel 5) get shown and recorded 
out-of-order. I use the new metadata feature to manually add 
season/episode number data to each show, and have my sort order set to 
season/episode. This means that shows are in the correct order when I 
select the show itself.

However, the Watch List feature doesn't seem to take account of this and 
is still (I think) just showing me the earliest recorded episode, 
ignoring the season/episode numbering and the sort order that I set. 
Does that fit with other people's experiences too?

If it's relevant, our data in the UK doesn't have original-air-date
