$paginator->sort() error?

I thought there was an error in the paginator view helper.  All of a sudden I could only sort a field ascending.  I (again) did a little research and came across a great thread on the CakePHP Google Group (here).  Basically, as of 1.2.8120, you need (or should) specify the ModelName in your sort() function.  I had only been doing sort('id'), sort('name').  Now I am doing sort('ID', 'ModelName.id') and sort('Name', 'ModelName.name').  It's a little more work having to specify the label (otherwise it defaults to ModelName.field, instead of just field).

Hope this saves someone a bit of head scratching.  Plus, I hope I remember this now that I've written a post about it.

Cheers,
