I recall some other cases, where it turned out that the problem is not dpkg's
and neither dh's.

from dpkg-gencontrol(1):

       The order  of  dependencies  is
       preserved as best as possible: if any dependency must be discarded due
       to another dependency appearing further in the field, the superseding
       dependency will take the place of the discarded one.

That means that whatever passes them to dpkg, has to sort them.
I quickly looked to dh_shlibdeps, and (if i got that right) it just call
dpkg-shlibdeps. Now I don't have a clue of the order used by this one, and the
manpage is way too long to be read in 5 minutes, but I'm fairly sure we didn't
patch that file (at least, the changelog does not state so).
