Sure. As you can see, Gimp is on the 3rd and last page

It's because it's sorted as “É”, whose codepoint comes after the codepoint for “x”. If the app name was just “GIMP”, it would show in the correct order.

So, the bug here is that collation should be set to match locale.

summary: - Gimp isn't alphabetically ordered
+ Sorting doesn't use locale collation
