Discovered trying to build kernels. But even typing  "ls -la | sort" has
some sort of memory error.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type: ls -la | sort
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  A memory error.

Expected Results:  The contents of the directory should be sorted.

Using the Redhat 7.0 textutils package fixed it.

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage textutils-

Does this happen in every directory?

This works for me (in next beta, Wolverine, though):

textutils-2.0.11-4

[harald@faro harald]$ ls -la|sort|wc -l
    949

textutils-2.0.11-6
