Title:
  Sort order is bizarre, and can not be changed

Status in GLib:
  Confirmed
Status in glib package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged
Status in gnome-desktop3 package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid

Bug description:
  Create some test files as follows:

  $ touch 000001000010-0.jpg 000001000010-A.jpg 000001A00010-0.jpg
  000003BBF000-0.jpg 00003bA1A000-0.jpg 00003BD22000-0.jpg
  0000A4AC3000-0.jpg 000100001 000100001.jpg 000200001

  View them at the command line and in Nautilus:

  $ ls -1
  000001000010-0.jpg
  000001000010-A.jpg
  000001A00010-0.jpg
  000003BBF000-0.jpg
  00003bA1A000-0.jpg
  00003BD22000-0.jpg
  0000A4AC3000-0.jpg
  000100001
  000100001.jpg
  000200001
  $ nautilus .

  ls sorts files as one might expect. It is not case sensitive (unless
  you use a case sensitive locale, e.g. LANG=C), but sorts
  alphabetically.

  Nautilus sorts the files in a bizarre order, regardless of which locale is 
used. Weird behaviours include:
  * Longer but otherwise equal filenames sort before shorter ones
  * Sometimes ignores runs of zeros, but not punctuation
  * Seems to detect runs of digits and sort them at the end

  The actual behaviour is very complex and difficult to predict, though
  it must follow some internal logic. The end result is that files don't
  sort in any reasonable order. This also impacts some other
  applications, such as Eye of Gnome. Others, like Transmission, respect
  locale.
