Is it possible to sort JIRA issues by the text value of Component?

We have multiple projects with the same text value for Component. I realize Jira treats these as separate component IDs. We have a user who is clicking the Components column in Issue Navigator and expecting it to sort by the text value of Component (which I realize can have > 1 value). It sort of works - it appears to sort by component but it's actually sorting first by Project and then Component. So it sorts like this (where A and B are projects and the components are Red, Green, Yellow in each project):

A Green

A Red

A Yellow

B Green

B Red

B Yellow

But they want to see:

A Green

B Green

A Red

B Red

A Yellow

B Yellow

I assume it's not possible. Anyone know?
