Sort doesn't!

I frequently try to use the sort function, but find it often does not
perform an accurate sort, especially a numerical sort.

I am using version 2.0a under RedHat Linux 6.2.

Several shell scripts that worked fine under 5.0 now fail to work
successfully.  Just pipe a list of a couple of hundred integers to "sort
-n" and you will find that you don't get an accurately sorted output.  It
is mostly correct but will have numerous figures in the wrong place.
