#674: Remote Database Sorting Incorrectly

 When querying databases through "xapian-progsrv" and sorting by value
 there appears to be circumstances under which the results returned are not
 correctly sorted by that value. A comparison has been done to accessing
 the same databases directly and there is no problem, but when using
 xapian-progsrv it fails.

 I've created a small failing example with 2 databases and a couple of ruby
 scripts to demonstrate my point at https://github.com/DylanGriffith
 /xapian-remote-test . The databases only contain value 0, there are no
 terms or data. Those values are integers that have gone through Xapian
 sort_serialise . Doing a query using local databases it works. When using
 xapian-progsrv through ssh it fails (ie. the results returned are not
 sorted in the way they should be).
