Issuetype order on project screen

What controls the order of the issue types on the project screens in Jira? It seems to be a random distribution of issue types and not reflecting the issue type order specified in the issuetype scheme.

As far as I can see the order of the dropdown in your create issue screen reflects the order given in your issue type scheme... What do you mean by oroject screens? A filter gadget? I would guess those are ordered by the issue type ID...

This list from the project screen (located oat the top right of screen) will randomly change from time to time -- it does not respect issuetype order.
