Try overring that with --date-order (you may have to patch the source).
--topo-order doesn't order by dates.  --date-order does somewhat
(respecting topology), which in the absence of clock skew should do what
you are looking for.

Note that you cannot *remove* --topo-order and use the default, which is
to only respect dates and not topology; that would break filter-branch.
