Comment (by jesin):

 **Cause:** The `parse_orderby()` function prefixes **post_** to names like
 **date, author, title** in the "default" case of its switch block.

 The **29424.diff** patch checks if a column name exists already in the
 `$orderby_array` and skips a loop if it does.

 I found another bug which was also patched in this file.

 $query = new WP_Query( array( 'orderby' => 'post_title post_date
 post_author', 'order' => 'ASC' ) );

 //Outputs: wp_posts.post_title ASC, wp_posts.post_date ASC,

 Notice the missing `ASC` for the last column. This is caused by the use of
 `implode()` to add the "order" index.
