### Description

It looks like sort by version doesn't always work correctly. Consider this listing:

libpango-1.0.so libpango-1.0.so.0 libpango-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpangocairo-1.0.so libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 libpangocairo-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpangoft2-1.0.so libpangoft2-1.0.so.0 libpangoft2-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpangomm-1.4.so.1 libpangomm-1.4.so.1.0.30 libpangoxft-1.0.so libpangoxft-1.0.so.0 libpangoxft-1.0.so.0.4800.4

This is exactly what you see when you sort by name.

However when you change the sorting mode to "by version" then something weird happens:

libpangocairo-1.0.so libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 libpangocairo-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpangoft2-1.0.so libpangoft2-1.0.so.0 libpangoft2-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpangomm-1.4.so.1 libpangomm-1.4.so.1.0.30 libpangoxft-1.0.so libpangoxft-1.0.so.0 libpangoxft-1.0.so.0.4800.4 libpango-1.0.so libpango-1.0.so.0 libpango-1.0.so.0.4800.4

This doesn't look right and seems rather illogical. Why has "libpango-1.0.so" become the last one on the list?
