This is a re-hashing of previous issues that appear to have been entered here
and dismissed/closed.... (See issue 60252 as an example...)

The sort dialog should remember the columns selected for the last sort... no
matter what.

Currently, from what I can determine, if you do a sort, then reselect the *same*
rows and columns, and open up the sort dialog again, the sort columns you
previously selected will come up.

However, if you select a different set of rows, or a sub-set of the ones you
previously selected, the sort dialog opens up with the default "Column A" as the
first sort criteria, and the other '-undefined-'.

That's great that OO Calc remembers the last sort you did for a set of rows, but
if the user selects a new set of rows that doesn't have a 'saved sort' already
assigned, it would be great if OO assumed the user would want to use the same
sort they used most recently.

A simple table with column A=Name, column B=Age:
Default sort is by age
Select entire table and sort by name
Select part of table -> sort is by age.
