Numeric sorting in the Storage interface incorrectly sorts numbers with no account for >1 digit numbers as it applies the alphabetic algorithm to numerals.

Situation: I have a set of podcasts that I have simply named 1-14.ogg, the number being the week.

Expected Behavior: I sort by name and it sorts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14 as any sane file manager does.

Current behavior: Storage sorts by first digit then second digit causing the order to be 1,10,11,12,13,14,2,3,4...

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Chris. We have made our development team aware of this.

One quick workaround, would be to name them 001, 002...010, 011, etc. This will put them in the correct order in Storage.
