That seems like a weird version - normally, the only people that should be running a -dirty version are those actually developing from coreutils.git; but since we have long since moved past 6.9, I'm assuming you got your coreutils pre-built as part of a distro. Rather than relying on a possibly broken man page, what does 'sort --version' state? At any rate, you may want to report the broken man page to your distro, to get them to fix it to report a saner string.

Meanwhile, the latest stable coreutils is 8.5, which fixes several real bugs in sort; or, if you use the current coreutils.git sources, you can use the new 'sort --debug' option which would give you some verbose hints about how your locale is affecting things.
