Why does Quicken reorder downloaded stock transactions?

I have checked to ensure that the order of trades in my QFX file from Interactive Brokers is in fact the order that the trades were made. I also checked to see that that order was maintained in the Downloaded Transactions window. But, if I select Accept All, Quicken enters the transactions in the register in a different order. Why? Do the developers not know that the order of transactions is relevant to the IRS? Please, developers, can this be fixed?

    In what manner do you believe that a transaction made at 10am (for example) vs one at 11am makes any difference to the IRS?
    Different days, perhaps, but explain "time of day" differences.
