DLNA movies not always 'appropriately' sorted (e.g. Recently Added)

Using XMBC nightly build from 20120531 (12d9d51) on a 32bit Windows 7 box, I notice that there are inconsistencies / usability items when looking at the DLNA data provided by XBMC.
I have tested this with free iOS DLNA client Media Link Player Lite (itunes.apple.com/ca/app/media-link-player-lite/id313455652?mt=8)
As it stands, items that appear in the (for example) XBMC's Recently Added items (on the GUI) appear correctly sorted in order that they were added.
However, the "Recently Added Movies" DLNA folder structure shows the data sorted by Title.
Furthermore, thumbnails are not provided for any of the items.
I have tested both of the above with Plex's implementation of DLNA (Plex 0.9.6.3 on Windows 7, against the same Client), and found that the client correctly orders by most recently added to latest (and also shows appropriate thumbnail).
