Are you sure reordering was necessary?  Did you try to restore
without reordering the objects?

You could also specify the database as an option to pg_restore and
skip piping the output into psql, unless perhaps you have a specific
reason for using psql.

Hmmm...I see the same behavior.  The following restores objects
with their original permissions:

pg_restore -d testdb db.dump

The following restores objects without their permissions:

pg_restore -l db.dump > db.list
pg_restore -d testdb -L db.list db.dump

I see that as well; I'll mention it on pgsql-bugs.
