Did some investigation on that one: It looks like buggy / outdated (pre fixpack 16) unicode support in OS/2 will cause QString::localeAwareCompare() to return bogus results. I leave the ticket open for now, but this is certainly a candidate for "wontfix".

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Yes, it seems so. At least on all my eCS systems it works like a charm (I specifically tested it on directories containing variously named files in both English and Russian, upper/lower case and so on).

A possible way to fix this would be to provide a complete 3rd party Unicode replacement (e.g iconv or whatever) but I don't feel that it's worth doing taking into account that in modern fixpacks the native Unicode support works well. So I'm wontfixing this. The one that disagrees will reopen.
