How to replicate the problem:

  • Create a View (Term)
  • Choose the vocabulary
  • Continue to edit the View
  • Add the relationship "taxonomy Term: Representative node"

Also the 7.x-3.x-dev seems affected.

Am I doing something wrong?

Debugging the query using hook_views_query_alter() I noticed that the left_query ($query->table_queue['node_taxonomy_term_data']['join']->left_query) is using (some) default settings. The ORDER BY clause is always:

Flushing the cache fixes the problem, the correct subquery ORDER BY is loaded.
But you must flush the cache after any changes.
