What causes a runaway sort?

I have a layout in table view which displays some related fields in addition to the fields in the context of the layout.  I have 124 records in the found set, and I sort them by one of the related fields, using the field header to initiate the Ascending sort.  Script triggers are disabled and the debugger is open to show me if any script is running.

 

The sort occurs and then it repeats itself endlessly.  Even if I am able to switch to layout mode, I can see the fields and labels to indicate that I am in layout mode however the Layout Menu doesn't offer me any live commands, and the sort continues and continues and continues to repeat itself.  Each time, there is a Cancel button which may or may not cancel the sort, but I can't figure out what causes the sort to perpetually be triggered.

 

There are no script triggers on the layout and there is no sort in the join predicates of the table occurrence for the related fields,
