If you let windows sort by name, I'm pretty sure it will do the same as
rockbox. Maybe the order was correct because you sorted by date/time?
Rockbox can do that as well.

I think pretty much everybody (outside the rockbox-world as well) uses a
2-digit track number, because of the sorting issue. There are tools which
can do the renaming for you, check out e.g. the godfather.

I doubt we will let the dir sorting do something else than you told it. ;-)
