This one should work against HEAD.

The patch doesn't apply cleanly against Turba from CVS HEAD. But we 
will make the change only there. Please upload an updated patch.

Arrows indicate the sorting direction of a column in "browse" mode. 
However, they also appear in all other columns, although those aren't 
sorted (and therefore cannot have a 'direction'). The arrows are 
confusing for a user, and rather unnecessary, since there actually is 
only one global sorting direction in the underlying code.

I propose to remove the arrows from all columns except from the one 
that is currently active. This has the small disadvantage that you 
cannot change the current sorting direction and column at the same 
time with one click, but I believe the advantages of a cleaner 
interface prevail.

A patch that implements this is attached.

This has already been changed in IMP:
