Package: bibtool
Version: 2.46-2
Severity: normal

When you sort a bibtex database with bibtool,
bibtool does not keep cross-referenced entries
after the entries that do the cross-referencing.
This causes bibtex to later complain bitterly,
and causes the user to re-order the entries
by hand, and complain (but not bitterly).

For instance, the following entries
need to be in this order:

@Book{            gelman:etal:advanced,
	crossref      = {gelman:etal},
	pages         = "18--25"

@Book{            gelman:etal:contbayes,
	crossref      = {gelman:etal},
	pages         = "7--11"

@Book{            gelman:etal,
	author        = "Andrew B. Gelman and John S. Carlin and Hal S. Stern and
	Donald B. Rubin",
	title         = "Bayesean Data Analysis",
	publisher     = "Chapman and Hall/CRC",
	year          = "1995",
	isbn          = "0-412-03991-5",
	edition       = "first"

but bibtool sorts gelman:etal to be first.
