Unfortunately, no patches or solutions (as far as I know).

A limited workaround is to change the marker type of all cross-reference 
markers (in tables or throughout), leaving the marker text unchanged (for 
example, change the marker type to a custom type).

After the table is sorted, change the marker type back to Cross-reference.

This can be automated with FrameScript, or by processing MIF files.
