bug (feature?) in ls

When I type "ls -al", I have always expected to see dot files at the top of the listing and regular files at the bottom. This version (5.94) does not follow that convention any more and it simply ignores the leading dot when ordering the output.


I'm running Debian GNU/Linux testing/unstable
