[Typo3] Sort access selector box by title?

I have a test typo3 3.8.0 setup with over 1,300 fe_groups entries  
imported from LDAP. When I go to a page header or content element,  
and click on the access selector box, the groups are listed in order  
of uid, which is basically random, and makes it very difficult to  
find the exact group you want. I searched the list and found you can  
change the default sortby to title with this in an extension:

$TCA['fe_groups']['ctrl']['default_sortby'] = 'ORDER BY title';

This worked when listing the groups in the backend using the web- 
 >list module, however the access selector box is still not sorted.  
Is there somewhere else in the TCA I need to change to make the  
access selector sort by title?
