[PP]Subjects with text followed by a number don't sort correctly
Build 1999082412M9: Linux/Redhat 6.0 Overview: Subjects with text followed by a number (i.e. test1, test2) do not sort correctly. Step to Reproduce: 1. Start Mail 2. Create and send messages with the Subject using text followed by a number (i.e. test1, test2, test3 through test10) 3. Get the messages 4. Create and send 10 more messages with the same subjects test1-test20 5. Get messages 6. Sort by Subject (either by selecting the Subject column or View/Sort/by Subject. Actual Results: The test messages do not sort in logical order. For instance, it displays test1, test9, test8, test7, test6, test4, test3, test2, test4, test3, test2, test1. Expected Results: I would expect the subjects to be ordered alphabetically. Other Platforms/Versions: - Win32/NT4: Build 8/24 sorts as expected. - Mac 8.5.1: Build 8/24 sorts as expected. - Wanted to try today's build for Linux but too many problems with the scroll bar and viewing messages. I will try later.
Probably a collation key bug. Reassign to nhotta, cc putterman.
