MMQGIS: joined attributes lose their column names in sort tool

When using mmqgis to sort a layer by a given column, the tool creates a new shapefile. In this new shapefile any attribute columns of the original that were the result of a join lose their column names which are replaced by name_of_data_table_#.

This is with QGIS 2.2 and mmqgis 2014.6.8.

Sorry, this bug report is not valid as such. Actually mmqgis completely ignores any joined attributes. This could be considered a bug as well, but it is a different one, so I'm closing this again.

Just for information: The "lost" attribute name came from a save as shapefile of the layer with joined attribute and the classic length limit of column names in dbf.

Serves to show that one should not just commit bug reports for colleagues without going through testing oneself...
