in thread perllocale weirdness, bug, or...?

Thanks for the tip - I really hoped it might solve the issue, but unfortunately it does not.

For the file test.txt (TAB separated fields) being
a_2 2 a2 1
I still get
$ sort -k 1,1 test.txt | cut -f 1 a2 a_2
whereas when there is no second field then the result is reversed,
a_2 a2
Looks like the problem 'survives'.
