2 issues - 1.) Sort not working… 2.) Filters not showing up on some pages

Ok… If you goto my site www.discountsofttops.com you will quickly notice that price sorting is not working.  It just randomly places products in a different order than they currently are in.  Also, http://www.discountsofttops.com/softtop-hardware/jeep-wrangler-jk.html will show that position sorting is not working either (the numbers in the left column of the table is the position of the product, notice they are mostly out of order)

Next, on some of my pages, but not all, the filters do not show up in the layered navigation for configurable products.  If i make the simple associated products visible by “Catalog, Search” then I see the filters.  But that just defeates the purpose.  It’s not all my pages though.  It is somewhat random.

I am running the latest version of magento, just did a refresh reinstall with new database and imported all products thru dataflow.  Still did not solve the issue.  Refreshed layered navigation indicies, all cache.  Still, nothing.  Tried Rebuild search index (which throws an error every time (what does that actually do anyway?)).

Is it just me then?  No one else on 1.2 having this issue?

after much research.  I think I’ve narrowed it down.

this method puts the products out of order.  Might want to take a look at it.  Whenever I call it it randomizes my product positions.

Mage::getSingleton('catalog/product_visibility')->addVisibleInCatalogFilterToCollection($products);
