A friend sent me the results from running on a FC4 system.

  guin:~$ printf "one\0two\nabc\0xyz\n" | sort -t "\0" -k2,2 | tr "\000" " "
  one two
  abc xyz
  guin:~$ printf "one\0two\nabc\0xyz\n" | sort -t "\0" -k1,1 | tr "\000" " "
  abc xyz
  one two
  guin:~$ cat /etc/redhat-release
  Fedora Core release 4 (Stentz)

So it seems to be fixed there too.  Therefore in your case of running
on FC3 it appears that upgrading to FC4 would solve your problem.
