I then would expect:

but instead I get
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2009-01-16 12:59 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    0 2009-01-16 12:59 a.c

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2009-01-16 12:59 .

Hm, is this reproducible? Which kernel, mount-options, arch?
Here on 2.6.24/amd64 the "directory order" (GNU/ls -U resp. BSD/ls -f)
seems to work as expected:

$ touch 1 2 3
$ mv 2 t/ ; mv 3 t/; mv 1 t/
$ ls -Ugo --time-style=full-iso t/
-rw-r----- 1 0 2009-01-22 15:50:01.414115303 +0100 2
-rw-r----- 1 0 2009-01-22 15:50:01.414115303 +0100 3
-rw-r----- 1 0 2009-01-22 15:50:01.414115303 +0100 1
