Laying aside that this may be a mongoDB internals issue, and laying aside possible Denial of Service attacks with deterministic keys, I'd have to ask "why does it even matter?"

    I have javascript manipulating the results of a mongoDB find() and, while I could, of course, edit this so it were not the case, the script currently depends on the String input from the find() being in a specific order. That and it just seems like this should be an easy thing to do.

      Hmmm ... well ... it's not as easy as you think. It would mean that perl and mongo would share the same or similar associative array implementations. Even if they did, then your approach would never work 100% since perl does not even promise the key order will be the same in different processes.

      Did you mean "String *output* from find"? If so, you're probably better of converting the JSON returned from the find into a true JS object and manipulating it that way instead of doing any string manipulation on the results.
