If it doesn't (native GNU sort on DOS/Windows seem to be old), use `-t: -k1,1 
-k2n` (if using absolute paths on DOS/Windows, make it `-k1,2 -k3n`).  Windows 
sort won't work (line numbers will be like 1-10-2); the old DOS CWSORT & RPSORT 
don't define a field separator (so you'll get 10-1-2); don't think I've come 
across anything else.  Of course, having GLOBAL grep sort it itself would be 
better, but it looks like it would actually be a bit of effort, which wouldn't 
be worth it.
