What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
Best guess is as follows:
1.  User A posts multiple comments for review
2.  User B starts writing responses
3.  User C publishes a reply to comments
4.  User B publishes comments (or updates page & publishes)

Although I think I've seen the order screwed up even publishing a mutli-comment reply with step 3 omitted.  Basically not sure what actually causes this.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected output is that replies are shown in the chronological order they were submitted.  There doesn't appear to be any order to the comments.  This is a really critical bug as reviews become impossible to follow.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Chrome 21 & Firefox 11

Please provide any additional information below.
Worked fine on 1.6.4

Thanks for all the detailed info. It really helped me narrow it down and make both a fix and a test case for it. We'll put it into a 1.6.11 release, once we ensure there aren't any other major regressions.

Pushed to release-1.6.x (4efa16e)
