Re: [O] Agenda search: setting sort-order

Bumping this question to see if anyone has a workaround -
I recently have been wishing to search for keywords and order
the results in reverse timestamp order.  

This sounds like a fairly useful and common feature, so I think 
there must be something I'm configuring incorrectly.  I am able 
to reproduce the problem using a fairly clean Emacs install (a 
VM with no customizations).

Hi all,

I'm using org-mode version 9.1.13 from elpa, and
have a custom agenda command:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
     ("z" search "" 
       ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(timestamp-up))))))

And I have an org-file with this data:

* TODO [#C] Test1                                                       :foo:
<2018-04-24 Tue 19:30>
* TODO [#A] Test2                                                       :foo:
<2018-05-24 Thu 19:30>
* TODO [#B] Test3                                                       :foo:
<2017-12-24 Sun 23:33>

The data is not sorted according to timestamp.  I cannot seem to 
get the data sorted in any fashion when using the "search" agenda mode.

However, if I change "search" to "tags" and search for the "foo" tag, then
it appears that the sorting works.  I've tested it with priority and timestamp
using the above data and it sorts the items correctly.

Why is my "search" agenda command ignoring the org-agenda-sorting-strategy?
