LS 2.00+: Question-level: "Get order from previous question" functionality

I wasn't able to find documentation how to use this feature. I tried creating a basic 2-question survey.

Q1 is multiple choice
Q2 is multiple choice

I have made the same subquestions for each question.

I have randomized Q1 on each page load.

I have enabled Q2's "Get order from previous question" functionality and set the field to "Q1", which should theoretically be preserving the randomization order of the subquestions.

It doesn't appear to work. I have enabled randomization for Q2 also. I have given both Q1 and Q2 the same randomization group name in the Logic area. Still they are not consistent.

I've included the LS file.

Any further guidance on how to use this feature?

Thank you.

I'm not sure if using the "Get order from previous question" functionality in combination with the "randomisation group" feature is possible at all.

Does it work when not using the "randomisation group" feature? If not, please file a bug report.
Our developers will hate you, because this is one of the most complex code parts. But anyway, if it doesn't work, it needs to be fixed.

I just added the "randomization group" part afterwards to see if that was the cause of it not working, but it did not help. So no, it does not appear to be working in either case.
