Re: Change in ls -l time stamp display?

If I could make a humble suggestion to those of us living in the 
backwaters of the US: Edit your /etc/sysconfig/i18n and do this:

#LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LANG="C"
LC_COLLATE=C

All will be well after that. Anything other than this will cause you to 
support things that in almost all likelyhood will not be what you want. 
BTW, Last time I looked, "." came lexicographically before any letter of 
the alphabet.
