Well, if you didn't program your radio with the altered file, then you
should be able to download your radio again and try to reproduce the issue.

Clicking on the column to sort doesn't change anything in the image
itself, it only affects how it's displayed.  The sorting is a function
of the widget, which is part of the graphics library and not part of
CHIRP itself.  So, I'm a at a bit of a loss as to how sorting could
possibly affect the image and memories themselves.

If you see it again, try to figure out what steps you took to get there
so that we can try to figure out what might be going on.  Also, noting
which memories actually disappeared (like locations 3, 5, and 12, etc)
and send me the image.

I bet VK3UR does a lot of sorting with radios packed to the gills with
memory locations.  Dave, have you ever seen memories fall out of the
view when sorting by column?
