did you set a Startup tweak?
Code:
ID: sort_columns_at_startup

Provide a set of columns to be sorted on when calibre starts
The argument is None if saved sort history is to be used
otherwise it is a list of column,order pairs. Column is the
lookup/search name, found using the tooltip for the column
Order is 0 for ascending, 1 for descending
For example, set it to [('authors',0),('title',0)] to sort by
title within authors.

@pinky - if that tweak is None (default), calibre will start with the most recent sort settings, as set by clicking on column headers.

So, maybe all you need to do is to click on the Date column header.

I wish one could turn off left click on column headers. For me at least, it's too easy to click a column header accidentally.
