How the images are displayed on the iPad - and why they might be sorted on date modified - is a question I'd ask on the iPad forum. Folks over there might have a solution.
As for why the modified versions:
Your camera has an Auto-Rotate feature. However, the camera does not actually rotate any pixels in the file, but instead flags it with an instruction: "Display me this way". This is a tag in the Exif metadata.
When you import a file with this tag iPhoto creates a modified version. It does this because most of the apps that integrate with it - email clients, word processors etc - simply don't understand this Exif tag. So if you used the shot in a word processing doc, uploaded it to many Web sites etc, the shot would come out sideways.
If you then try to Revert to Original, iPhoto will remove the edited version. However, when it then looks at the Original file again, it sees the flag, and creates a new rotated version. This loop will run as long as you Revert to the Original.
The solution is to either a: turn off the Auto-Rotate feature on your camera or b: rotate the photos prior to importing them to iPhoto.

Thank you for your quick replay. Why are pictures in Iphoto on Macbook displayed in correct order? Only those on Ipad in the file "event" are displayed in a wrong order. The photos on Ipad in the file "all photos" are displayed in correct way. This is weired.

I don't know. iPhoto for Mac uses the Exif metadata for sorting on date. I don't use a iPad for photos, and the apps on the iPad are not related to iphoto, so that's why I suggest asking on the iPad forum.
