Yes, it looks like it is doing a simple textual sort of the versions.  I 
would recommend using the RubyGems Version object and sorting those.

$ irb --simple-prompt
 >> require 'rubygems'
=> false
 >> [Gem::Version.new("1.10"), Gem::Version.new("1.9")].sort.map { |t| 
t.version }
=> ["1.9", "1.10"]
