The same happened to me last week. Your item has blank spaces in its 
portal type and have no meta type set apparently.


Put a pdb in the ordering code (Archetypes/OrderedBaseFolder.py or 
something like that) and check the meta type of your objects and the 
meta type of the FTI, one will be "TodoItem" and the other "Todo Item".
