Thanks.  This is an annoying "feature" of the tar command on Macs  
that is really annoying.  Especially so since it's invisible to me  
unless I explicitly check for it.  I've updated my profile so it  
shouldn't do this by default.

FileList shouldn't assume any particular order.  That's a bug in the  
test that is assuming too much.
