Oh, I don't have any issues with commits and source code, it is the time to
locate why something is not working as expected.  In case of the version sort
test in coreutils, it required me to trace ls and see what functions it is
calling for the version sort, then I searched for commits and found the change.
I looked at the messages from the report of the bug till Paul fixed it, but a
crucial part of the knowledge was still missing -- it is the expected sorting
order of this Debian sort (without reading into the specification it is not
clear what the expected order is supposed to be).

Anyway, thanks.  All is good now.
