The ps code very carefully sorts first by controlling terminal number (unless
told to sort by memory or CPU usage), then by PID.  This is probably a
documentation flaw (or possibly a failure to track a change), but it would
probably also be nice if ps had an option to sort strictly by PID.  (It would
be trivial to implement, too.)
