I have finally tracked this down and fixed on trunk:
The sources were actually sorted. The reason why this
sorting appears to be incomplete, and the reason why this
only appears to happen if you build all targets, is that we're
not sorting names of source files. We are sorting the targets,
or more specifically string ids of class instances in Boost.Jam
language. Therefore the order does not correspond to lexicographic
ordering of the names, and the order depends on what other targets
were created before.
You might want to port to your branch. Though, IIRC, you're gonna
merge your changes to trunk soon. In that case, you might want
to just skip the workaround you did on the branch when doing
