In some cases a baselayer needs to be available before other layers or controls can be added. For example adding a vector layer with strategy "Fixed" requires a baselayer. Can we add baselayers first or is there another way to solve this problem?

The attached patch moves all baselayers to the top before adding them to the map.

This seems to work just fine, and solves the issue with #1387908: MapProjection is null error on initial fetching of kml layer.

A change in 2.11 (documented here: seems to require this change.

I'd prefer someone else more familiar with OpenLayers to RTBC this though.

In the long run the "Fixed" strategy should be fixed directly in OpenLayers. I'll prepare a pull request on GitHub ASAP, but in the meantime we need to fix this here.
