From: Eric Hanchrow
Subject: sort-numeric-fields sorts incorrectly

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.0.93 (gnu/linux)

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2006-05-17 on rothera, modified by Debian
configured using `configure '--build=i486-linux-gnu' '--host=i486-linux-gnu' 
'--prefix=/usr' '--sharedstatedir=/var/lib' '--libexecdir=/usr/lib' 
'--localstatedir=/var/lib' '--infodir=/usr/share/info' 
'--mandir=/usr/share/man' '--with-pop=yes' '--with-x=yes' 
'--with-x-toolkit=athena' 'CFLAGS=-DDEBIAN -g -O2' 'build_alias=i486-linux-gnu' 
'host_alias=i486-linux-gnu''
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US.UTF-8
  locale-coding-system: utf-8
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

* Start emacs with --no-site-file -Q
* Erase the *scratch* buffer's contents with C-x h C-w
* Type the following four lines into the *scratch* buffer:
101111
0201111
0401111
301111
* Type M-x sort-numeric-fields RET.  Note that the buffer now contains
0201111
101111
0401111
301111

This is a bug, because 0201111 is greater than 101111, and yet appears before 
it.

Note that this bug also appears in CVS Emacs.
