In thunar/thunar-file.c change all "g_utf8_collate_key_for_filename" to
"g_utf8_collate_key". If that solves your issue you consider adding an
option and submitting a patch.
We use "g_utf8_collate_key_for_filename" to handle unicode and to make
Thunar behave like other Gtk file manager. This function sorts any
numbers in file names in numerical order, which in general is a feature
(Thunar's old sorting algorithm did it as well) but I can understand if
some would like to have an option to disable it.
