Order of custom thumbnail filenames in Publisher album set/album list?

I've got a custom thumbnails album for my publisher instance where I've been putting the thumbnails used in my album sets / albums and it contains thumbnails with filenames like this:

This custom thumbnails album is set to order on filename in Lightroom and if you look in the album in Backlight 2's publisher section, you can see that the filename sorting is respected.

But when the list of custom thumbnails are offered in the Lightroom Publisher plug-in popups for album sets/albums...the filenames offered in the list are presented in a random order making finding and selecting the desired custom thumbnail somewhat painful. 

Would it be possible to have that drop list offer the filenames in the custom thumbnail album's defined order?

Also, it'd be nice if I'm looking to choose from a custom thumbnail that only the custom thumbnails be offered in the drop list.  The current implementation seems to pull all of the potential thumbnails after the custom thumbnails are offered which for some of my albums can be a huge list.

Thanks!  smile

Thanks for raising this.  I've added it on my to-do list to look into
