Basically soon after introducing virtual copies into a collection the virtual copy will randomly jump to a different spot in the order, usually between 5-15 places away. This will happen with every virtual copy. Often I provide a lot of images with a black and white alternative, so my order will often be Photo1, Photo1B&W, Photo2, Photo2B&W etc. No however they are all over the place and I'll have Photo32, Photo17B&W, Photo33, Photo24B&W etc. So far it appears to only be happening in collections with 100+ images but seriously 100 is not a lot of images to try to keep ordered, and I'm not sure if that is simply coincidence or if there is a common theme.
Not only does it slow down the workflow when going through images, it means before I export I'm re-ordering 100s of photos, and sometimes it makes adjustments before I re-order them all and so it's just becoming impossible to maintain a custom order.
It is a similar issue to what is occurring here https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-major-bug-with-custom-sort-order
