Re: Unwanted natural sorting of numbers


    Thank you very much for your time. You helped me gather information before I could create the ticket (now I know it happens with the latest upstream version too), and I'm kind of relieved that it's not mc's normal behaviour because it means I may eventually get to fix it in my system. I've created a new ticket with this information:

Thanks all for your work on Midnight Commander

My testing Ubuntu Hardy system is set up as follows:

zyv mypride:~/Desktop$ locale

Yes, it looks like this issue has to do with your specific setup. I'm
not implying that it is NOT an mc problem, but at least for now we
couldn't reproduce it.

Your best bet would be to open a ticket on the Trac with all relevant
information as not all of the developers follow the list. Maybe someone
will then come up with a test case to isolate the problem.

Sorry, my diagnosis powers are depleted at this point.
