Bug when reading a folder

Assume that Winamp's preferences, the option "sort files by name" has been selected.

Assume F is a folder whose files are



Now, in a explorer window, select by right clicking on the name of the folder : "enqueue in winamp" (or something of that name - I use the french version). Here is what I get



You can see that the files are not sorted by any sensible order...
In fact, Winamp did not do the job it was asked for and just list the files in the order windows got them. So, the preference "sort files by name" is not satisfied..

This is a bug...

Note that this bug does not occur for any of the two time consumming following methods : 1) open the folder, clik on the last files then on the first while holding the sfift key 2)Within winamp "shift + L"

So I guess the related bug needs only a few line corrected to be supressed.

Best

I forgot to ask : does the OS and how the drive is formatted matters ? (does changing for ntfs suppress the bug ?)
