[SRILM User List] Odd behavior in disambig and OOV words

The attached patch seems to fix the problem.

The problem stems from pseudo-random ordering of hypotheses that have
identical scores in viterbi/nbest decoding.
The patch introduces an additional sorting criterion to make the
ordering deterministic.
If you add the option -nbest 10  you see the alternatives that get the
same score, and there are often many.
