If the locale is set appropriately, it is correct behavior.  For example,
it's how Solaris 8 /usr/bin/sort behaves in the en_US.UTF-8 locale.

Environment variables other than LC_ALL also affect strcoll.
What is the output of the "locale" command?  What are the values of
your LC_COLLATE and LANG environment variables?
