Realtime table in dashboard is not maintaining sort order

approachct
Path Finder

I have a dashboard consisting of several panels one of which is a table. The output of the search is a table |sort -_time. As new events are coming it it is not placing them at the right position in the sort order but at the bottom, or sometimes in the middle even though the time of the event is the latest. I tried it with and without the sort and get the same behavior. If I click the sort arrow on the _time field it re-sorts and they are in the right order but then it breaks again as new events come in.

Anyone else see this behavior and fix it? Anyone explain why this is happening?
