Revision "numbers" are just strings to BuildBot, since it uses
40-digit hex IDs for git and Mercurial.  Sorting git/hg changeset IDs
makes even less sense than sorting svn revision numbers as strings, so
it really makes no sense at all to sort that display.

Sounds like a bug in the "Console" display to me.  You might want to
open a ticket for it.
