Banshee has an option - sort playlist by track number, which does nothing when clicked. Is it a bug or am I missing something?

I think this is indeed a bug. There is some discussion about this problem on the banshee bug tracker here: – SuprMan Jul 18 '14 at 21:03

I'm pretty sure that the Order is Artist>Album>Track number, not just track number.

In fact, also your songs are ordered this way.

if I want to sort that by Track number > Artist > Album? – user53058 Apr 8 '12 at 11:42
Use another player. There are a lot. – dadexix86 Apr 8 '12 at 15:30

From the bug report, they are ordered as Artist > Album > Track Number, so you have:

1 - artist a - album 1
2 - artist a - album 1
1 - artist a - album 2
1 - artist b - album 1
