I tried it, several times, on a standalone Windows workstation and the 
same happens.
I am not saying that the sorting takes too much time; the whole process 
takes too much time.

And please note that it also happens with the runfilex.ps code provided 
by Adobe, which does not sort but instead presents Distiller with a list 
of files to process, instead of letting it rely on the dir order. 
Sorting is not the problem here.
