      Description

      Given a query with a predicate and sort over the same field, and given a document where this field is an array, it is expected that the sort key generated for the document will be the first element in the array that is within the bounds specified by the predicate (or last element in the array, if a descending sort is requested). The merge sort for sharded queries does not choose sort keys this way; the entire array is incorrectly chosen as the sort key.

      Example: suppose that "foo" is a sharded collection over two shards, and each shard contains one document.

      mongos> db.foo.find().sort({a:1})
      { "_id" : -1, "a" : [  3,  5 ] }
      { "_id" : 0, "a" : [  4 ] }
      mongos> db.foo.find({a:{$gt:3}}).sort({a:1}) // results in wrong order
      { "_id" : -1, "a" : [  3,  5 ] }
      { "_id" : 0, "a" : [  4 ] }
      

      The results for the second query above are in the incorrect order. The sort key for {_id: -1} should be "5", and the sort key for {_id:0} should be "4".

      On "bar", an unsharded collection with the same data, the results appear in the correct order.

      mongos> db.bar.find().sort({a:1})
      { "_id" : -1, "a" : [  3,  5 ] }
      { "_id" : 0, "a" : [  4 ] }
      mongos> db.bar.find({a:{$gt:3}}).sort({a:1}) // results in correct order
      { "_id" : 0, "a" : [  4 ] }
      { "_id" : -1, "a" : [  3,  5 ] }
