Show previous/next links if you change default thread sorting

So, I've encountered an interesting bug and identified the problem. I'd like to request a mod that allows for the previous/next links to continue to work if you set the thread sorting to something other than default. In my case, alphabetically.

Is this an imperfection , something wrong with our install , or is there a good reason for this ?
The code the looks for the next/previous threads looks based on the date/time the thread was posted and only that, so it must be disabled when anything except the default sort is chosen.
So to jump into more detail about the issue, I made this thread with live examples.

I noticed that if I visit a thread that is a couple of subforums deep, the navlinks dont show up properly. Example:

And here's how nested it is

Forum > Sony Chat & Cheat codes > Playstation 1 Chat > Playstation Cheat Codes > Thread Title

What I'm referring to by navbar_link is the next & previous thread navbar_link that show up below the thread replies. If you go *up* a subforum and view a thread, they show up fine...

So to give a clearer example:

Category > Forum > Navtags work in threads in this forum (Live Example)
Category > Forum > Subforum > Navtags do not work in threads in this subforum, because they are being sorted alphabetically (Live Example)

What can I change to rectify this issue?

Follow the settings in the attachment and browse the edited forum to reproduce the issue.
