1. Sort table direction in descending order on app id.
2. Click on an application and perform an "activate" or "deactivate" action.
3. See how after it completes that the sort direction is now ascending by app id, even though the icon still says descending.
If you click on another header, it will be corrected.
This happens because AppMgmtRequest (server side) only takes the action and the name, not the sort direction. It chains its response to AppDataRequest and the default sort for that is ascending on App ID.
