I think this is an important point.  If DERBY-4331 is hard to fix or 
nobody can look at it right now,  I think we should go ahead and release with the warning.

I think our testing for order by (and also group by) may be somewhat 
thin based on past issues and this regression popping up.  Any ideas on 
improved testing would be welcome. Perhaps DERBY-4112 would be helpful 
in flushing out these cases where one plan works and another does not. I 
don't think implementing such testing would be a quick fix by any means, 
even if the fix for DERBY-4331 proves to be.

To ensure adequate time to fix the bug and do the proper testing, I am 
still leaning on posting with a warning.
