Is it just my imagination (a symptom of age-related cognitive decline,
no doubt), but has -browse- changed in Stata 11?

I seem to remember that in earlier versions of Stata, if I specified a
particular order of variables when using -browse-, then the data were
displayed in that order.
For example, if I had 100 variables x1, x2, x3, ..., x100 and they were
in this order in my dataset (x1 up to x100). In earlier versions of
Stata if I typed -br x5 x45 x20- then I would see the variables
displayed in that order: x5 x45 x20.
In Stata 11 however, they are displayed: x5 x20 x45.

Am I right?
