And here is the result when sorting the same sequence on a windows box:

> bla = read.table("xx.txt",stringsAsFactors=F)
> bla = bla[,1]
> bla[1:10]
 [1] "1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"   "1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"
"1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"   "1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"
 [5] "1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"   "1000_DGFVALSK_2_run0"
"1001_DGGAWGTEQR_2_run0" "1001_DGGAWGTEQR_2_run0"
 [9] "1001_DGGAWGTEQR_2_run0" "1001_DGGAWGTEQR_2_run0"
> sort(bla)[1:10]
 [1] "1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"  "1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"
"1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"  "1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"
 [5] "1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"  "1_AAAAAAALQAK_2_run0"
"10_AAATAEEPDPK_2_run0" "10_AAATAEEPDPK_2_run0"
