Nope, per the standard, shell glob results "sorted according to the
collating sequence in effect in the current locale" (from IEEE Std
1003.1-2008).

The only thing I can think of is a random bit-flip on your USB stick.
The shell and "cat" are large-file safe, so even if you were running
this on a 32 bit host, you should have no problems.
