 Had some some today and hope that I fixed the sorting issue. I think it
 looks OK on my Mac because I remember something about Mac directories
 being automatically alpha sorted, whereas Linux ones are not.

 So I've forced sorting of the location and mapset lists. Let me know if it
 works. If so, this ticket can be marked as resolved.
