Once you sort the data it is sorted everywhere though looking at the  
code it appears that the persistent data is not updated after sorting.  
This will be fixed in the next version but you could do this to  
restore your previous sort:

set the dgIndexes of group "DataGrid" to the dgCache["sequencing"] of  
group "DataGrid"

The property that actually changes internally is the dgIndexes of the  
data grid. The dgIndexes contains a comma delimited list of the  
internal array keys in the sorted order.
