The weight admin option does not actually affect the weight of the button as it does not actually get referred to.
Patch works as expected.
Is this patch in dev version?
Will be released soon. I've been working the D7 version only, and now in the process of taking over the D6 version as well.
This was included in 6.x-1.2
