           Summary: FileChooserDialog sorting order on OSX
           Product: gtkmm
           Version: 2.4
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: gtkmm-forge lists sourceforge net
        ReportedBy: bryce osdl org
         QAContact: gtkmm-forge lists sourceforge net
     GNOME version: Unspecified
   GNOME milestone: Unspecified

Please describe the problem:
The FileChooserDialog displays filenames in strict alphabetical order, with
uppercase letters sorted before lower case letters, which on Linux is as
expected.  However, an OSX Inkscape user reported a bug that this is not as
expected on OSX:

I am not familiar with OSX, but if OSX has the policy of sorting regardless of
case, then should Gtk sort that way on OSX, or should it be sorting in the
Linux style?

Steps to reproduce:
1. In inkscape on OSX, load the File import dialog

Actual results:
Capitalized files appear above lower case.

Expected results:
On OSX, should sort as appropriate for OSX applications.  On Linux, the current
behavior is correct.

Does this happen every time?
