#277 closed defect

Sort by name when browsing svn filesystem incorrect — at Initial Version

The way a sort is done in Browser.py causes the display order of names in the view to be inconsistent with normal python string order, can be seen at http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/browser/tags/ where 0.6 is listed after 0.6.1.

The following patch fixes this by stripping the trailing / from the name before doing the comparison in the sort. May not be the best way to do it but gives the desired results.
