The tests are fixed. They are ordered correctly to the newly mocked
function. I don't quite get what more you'd like to see fixed.

Well, that's a property of the hash table that the code should not
depend on ordering. In fact the only part which is slightly dependant on
ordering is the test suite. The fix to mock the ordering function
properly is tested.
