When I use the new configurable swatches with Magento 1.9.1, the configurable items are not sorted like in the drop-down.

For example sizes, I want sizes sorted like S, M, L, XL. That is also how I sorted them by position in the attribute settings.

Now with the configurable swatches they seem sorted at random, like M, XL, S, L. It's not alphabetical or in position, I can't figure out what is going wrong.

After setting up the use of these swatches I re-indexed and cleared cache.

I had the same issue and applied the 2nd fix given here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27270918/magento-1-9-1-not-sorting-configurable-product-attributes-dropdown-by-position:

[...] copy app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Resource/Product/Type/Configurable/Attribute/Collection.php to local folder app/code/local/Mage/Catalog/Model/Resource/Product/Type/Configurable/Attribute/Collection.php and apply this patch:

If you are hesitant of copying across a core file to local folder then I can create a quick module, <rewrite> this Collection.php file and just override the _loadPrices() function and introduce this fix.

You just have to copy the core file to app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Resource/Product/Type/Configurable/Attribute/Collection.php and add the given code - it was line 304 for me.

It worked fine for my size attribute swatches.
