Then what exactly is the problem here?  Emacs doesn't know in what
order the files are returned, it considers the order random.
Reversing a randomly ordered list produces another randomly ordered
list.  Applications that need to present the list in some specific
order need to do that explicitly.  For example, "C-x C-f TAB TAB" does
display the files in alphabetic order for me, not in reverse
alphabetic order.
