Maybe my system is borked, will try another one.

How do I set this back to "en_US.UTF-8"? It's definitely the problem:
$ printf 'A\na\nBZ\nBa' | LC_COLLATE=C sort
$ printf 'A\na\nBZ\nBa' | LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8 sort

Sorry for spamming. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm/+bug/506396
Turned out the value for 'Language' in ~/.dmrc was set to 'C' instead of en_US.UTF-8.
Everything's fine now. :)
