iTunes sort by release date stuck at 19 Nov

No new apps are showing up in the list when you sort by Release Date.  The people that were approved around Nov 19 and 18 have been showing up at the top for 5 or 6 days now (enviable).

I noticed this issue a few days ago but figured it would get fixed quickly.

So. Wrong.

Any other site or application would be embarrassed about such obvious breakage.

Homebuy 1.0 was approved but 95% of people would never know now.  It's new so it doesn't appear as high in the rankings if you search for "mortgage calculator".  You can't find when sorting by Name or Release Date.

Apple really is making some serious mistakes.
