Issue

When clicking the quick sort button in a header, the results are not in the expected order.
View is using a fake axis for advanced formatting options as described here:
Crosstab of Many Colors
 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

 

Cause

By creating a dual axis chart using ATTR(1) the view only looks like a single column.  However, it is actually a scatterplot, and the quick sort is sorting by the measure that makes up that axis, in this case ATTR(1).
