Doesn't seem to have created much interest.

Seems like a bug to me.

How do I enter bug into tracker?

Right. Me neither. ;-)

If this is as designed, then either remove the ORDER BY clause in the
view definition and do the ordering when querying the view or add proper

triggers on the view to make the view updateable again.

If this is not as designed, then it should be entered into the tracker
for further investigation.
