I have a bug that happened all of a sudden.  I've never had this problem before.


Files and folders do not "sort" by "Name" in the Finder, Address Book, and Mail when I am in any of these three applications.


This is occurring on my, iMac 20", 2.1 GHz, PowerPC, G5, running OS X 10.5.8.


I also have a MacBook Pro, 2.4 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo, also running OS X 10.5.8, that is not having this problem.


I use Word and when I create a new document and go to Save, all my folders on the Finder show sorted by "Name".


Any ideas?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iMac 20", 2.1 GHz, PowerPC, G5
