Anyone ** NOT ** seeing this?

Yes. I just tried it under tcsh and bash with 6000, 8000, and 8150 lines,
and it works for me.  LANG=en_US.UTF-8 implies LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8
but I also set LC_COLLATE explicitely and retried.  sort tt | head
always prints

  abcde    1xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    2xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    3xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    4xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    5xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    6xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    7xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    8xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    9xxxxx0123456789
  abcde   10xxxxx0123456789

and then returns to the prompt.

Corinna, thank you for trying !!!!!

But that is curious ... I only send my initial post after having verified
my system (Cygwin).

As I got no response to my initial post, I decided it had to be "me". For
that reason I once more scrutinized? my system (Cygwin).

Among others:

- downloaded the base packages (from my favorite mirror) into a separate
   repo (directory on my system)
 - installed Cygwin (base packages) into a new directory.

All using setup! The outcome was the same. It came as a surprise to me.

I will attach cygcheck-minsrv.out (for _anyone_ who is willing to take a
look at it). I did not spot anything "funny" in there.
