I'm using FC6 with all the latest updates.  PgAdmin3 is on version
1.4.3.  

Here are the steps to reproduce the bug given that the files
postgresql.conf and pg_hba.conf have been properly set up:

Create any table
Add one field at a time to that table by right clicking on the "Columns"
tree item and selecting "New Column".  You will note that the new
column's name appears in "alphabetical order" in the "tree" on the left
pane...initially.  But in reality, this is NOT representative of the
true "physical position" of the field in the table structure.  This
resulted in many frustrating attempts on my part to figure out what I
was doing "wrong".  Eventually I discovered, by shutting down and
restarting PgAdmin...that in reality, the last field added is always in
the last physical position in the table.  The bug is only found in the
"temporary displayed state" of the tree diagram.  This may seem like a
very small problem to some, but it can result in much frustration for
new users of PgAdmin...because it leads users to believe that PgAdmin
can't follow very simple instructions.
