I stand corrected - and apologize for suspecting a "bug"

I had set the LC_ALL - then started a script.
I now set the LC_ALL inside the script and all is fine.

Many thanks for your help,

That's most likely the problem, then.  Your systems are consistent
with sorting with the en_US.UTF-8 locale.

Most likely you thought you set LC_ALL=C, but you didn't actually set
it the way you thought.  So you were still sorting in en_US.UTF-8 mode.
