Description Petr Pisar 2013-09-02 06:21:43 EDT
coreutils-8.21-18 breaks sorting by non-first field:

$ cat test 
x  A 1
x  B 1
xx A 2
xx B 2
$ <test sort -k2
x  A 1
x  B 1
xx A 2
xx B 2
$ rpm -qf $(type -p sort)

This is a regression against 8.21-16:

$ rpm -qf $(type -p sort)
$ <test sort -k2
x  A 1
xx A 2
x  B 1
xx B 2

This happens if field 1 (the x's) differs in length. It does not depend on locale.
