Not able to re-arange unsorted playlist is intentional (to not overwrite original sort), it works this way in MM4 too.

On your video the playlist order isn't truly changed, just the # shows incorrect values, you can press F5 to get original order.

Anyhow, as discussed over IM the solution is to reset to the default playlist order whenever user resturns to the playlist.
i.e. not persist the dis-ordered playlist once the current view is exited (like in MM4)

Now it looks more natural.

HINT: if user wants to preserve current custom sort he can open it in new tab and continue browsing.
