This should be fixed now. order should be respected on any method that takes a sort.

Order does nothing for /questions, /questions/tagged/{tags} and /questions/unanswered. I think this is by design, but now that I think about it I don't know why the order parameter is listed in the documentation for them (other than consistency with everything else that takes sort).
