Thanks for reporting, I can reproduce the issue with some other locales. The
thing is there seems to be no standard for abbreviated length. Formerly we had a
3 character lenght for abbreviated month.

We now use CLDR which seems to follow the abbreviated rules from IBM:
"Each string must be of equal length and contain 5 characters or less"

There are 2 possible fixes: either always pad those in the locale definition
which seems wrong or modify ls so that it by itself pads properly.

Neither posix nor ISO-14652 defines the length of the abbreviated form

padding in the locales themself would be wrong so I do propose to pad in the ls
command. And padding with 5 characters.

Best regards,
