QGIS Server 3 - drawing order of grouped layer

I noticed problems with the drawing order of grouped layers on QGIS Server 3. If I load a WMS service consisting of several (grouped) layers completely into a desktop GIS, everything is fine. However, if I load several single layers from this WMS service, area and line layers of a grouped layer are drawn first and "painted over" by other layers (e.g. raster data, see attached screenshots). That's not the expected behavior and with QGIS Server 2 this problem doesn't exist.
I add a QGIS project file and a geopackage with sample data (see attached zip-file qs3.zip).
[server] Fix layer order rendering when layers are in groups (#8796)
- [server] Fix layer order rendering when layers are in groups
- Update test images
- [server] Fix order of layers in subgroups
basically: layers in WMS is specified in a comma separated
list where leftmost layer is drawn first (it's at the bottom)
and QGIS layer order is exactly the opposite: first layer
in the TOP (topmost) is drawn last (it is at the top).
For this reason the server reverses the list before passing
it to the renderer.
- Fix order of layers in test
- Update src/server/services/wms/qgswmsrenderer.cpp

I don't see any issue with drawing order with current QGIS master, can you please add the exact WMS calls that are causing the problem?

thank you so much for taking care of this problem.
I have done tests with the current QGIS Master (for me: code revision d59a346560). The problem still persists. Unfortunately, I can't serve on the fast with an accurate WMS call :-(. Alternatively, I have made two screenshots of possible settings when adding layers using the "Data Source Manager" in QGIS Desktop. I hope that's sufficient.
