The sorting of images depends on the date stored in each image's EXIF data; if that data does not exist, the images are given the current date. There appears to be no way to fix an image with a missing date, so it will be forever displayed in the wrong place.
There's a program called exif which is a command-line tool that will allow you to modify exif tags; you could use that tool to set the date in the exif information. The scripts I use to process my images use this command-line tool to set the author/copyright information in all my images.
