Notification page: topic order and "new" button

Two issues regarding the Notification page (action=shownotify):

1) The link from the "new" button isn't entirely correct; it needs a "#new" appended to it.  Right now, clicking "new" will take you to the page with the oldest unread post, but it won't automatically scroll to that post.  If you add the "#new" to the URL, it will do this.  (This will make the "new" button behave the same way here as on the main Board pages.)

2) The order of the notifications is completely unintuitive... it's not sorted by topic start date or by most recent reply.  In fact, I can't figure out HOW it's sorted!  IMHO, the list should be sorted based on last reply, preferably descending (newest on top) but this could be user/admin-selectable.  Since the purpose of the Notifications page is to make it easy to jump to updated threads, the list really needs to be sorted in a fashion which reflects that, e.g. chronologically.
