Thanks, Fengqian,

Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking... make a helper method that
wraps paginate_query() and looks at the sort_keys and, if there is no
column that is unique, it will append the primary key column(s) to the
sort keys.

I'll review your latest patches later today (currently up in Montreal at
the Neutron/Tempest QA code sprint, so a little delayed...)
