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

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing

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

After running "M-x shell-command <RET> wget
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/%7Emgk25/ucs/examples/UTF-8-demo.txt <RET>" I
ran "M-x find-file <RET> UTF-8-demo.txt <RET>" followed by "M-x
set-mark-command <RET>". I then ran "M-x goto-line <RET> 213 <RET>" and
"M-x sort-lines <RET>".

Instead of acknowledging my locale, en_US.UTF-8, and sorting the text
accordingly, the text was sorted as if my locale were set to POSIX. When
using the sort application from coreutils that acknowledges my locale,
en_US.UTF-8, the SHA-1 hash sum of the sorted text is
ab5a47ade28af1ababa623dd33c5134e6188b0b7. When the text is sorted using
the "M-x sort-lines <RET>" command, the SHA-1 hash sum of the text is
