:include and sorting

I added an include to a find statement in order to preload data rather
than using lazy loading
eg.Client.find(params[:id],:include=>[:contacts, :etc,:etc])

I have a sort clause in the Client model eg
has_many :contacts, :order=>"contact_date"

The sort works fine when listing Client.contacts in a view, but as
soon as I do the include to preload the sort order is lost.

Is there any simple way around this apart from removing the include?

Cheers
George

   Client.find params[:id], :include=>[:contacts, :etc, :etc],
                            :order => 'contacts.contact_date'

should work.
