Until mid May this year, when you downloaded a new wu, it's record went to the top of the list in "Your Account->Tasks". The wu I received 20th May was the last to do this. The one 23rd May is now top of the list with later ones continuing down the list.

I don't know if this was by design, but it is a bit of a nuisance.

It's a design side-effect, caused by a combination of CPDN pre-creating large batches of tasks, the BOINC scheduler randomly selecting the task to be sent and user task lists being ordered by task id.
