I got a "stalled post" message because at the time of filing I was not
on this list. I don't know when moderators would look at it, and if
perhaps they deemed that it should not be posted, so it was discarded
without me being notified. I have the text that was generated by the web
form, and can send it again now that I am on the list, but I don't want
to do so if that's bad form.

To add a little detail, this wasn't that I believed a sort wasn't
correct alphabetically, lexicographically, numerically, etc., but rather
when the sort was being performed.

That bug number never came by here --- might've gotten eaten by spam
filters?  Anyway, we've seen many many complaints about strange sort
ordering, and every one of them boiled down to Postgres doing what
the LC_COLLATE locale setting told it to.  Try "show lc_collate".
If it's not "C" you might wish to re-initdb in C locale.
