Arrange by Name (numeric) = Random sort criteria (Linux)

Arrange by Name (numeric) isn't an useful feature, since it does not arrange files by any criteria... See this screenshot:

Arrange by name or even arrange by date does the sort in desired way, but Arrange by name (numeric) mess up everything.

XnView 1.68.1 for Linux.

Arrange by name is a useful feature. From what I can see in your bug report it just doesn't work properly on Linux. I've tried on Windows OS and it looks alright.

Have you tried it with filenames which have two or more numbers? Like "MyFile-2004-05.jpg"? I haven't tried too far, but it looks like the "arrange numeric" only works on "first" number found on a filename. More than one number will mess up everything.
