This capability was in 10.3 and earlier and was actually removed in 10.4 (or perhaps in 10.2 and earlier and removed in 10.3), just in case you didn't know that. Not to say that this isn't a bug, but Apple seems to have intentionally disabled this feature.

Maybe it was doing direct plist access before, and they changed it to use Apple Events. As noted in RABF #31, System Events only allows insertion of new Login Items at the end. (The Notes section of this post mentions this fact, somewhat obliquely, by referring to the rdar:// URL for the actual bug report.)
