sort & list-dir

In the source of list-dir there is a line
     dir: sort dir
As I know sort is a destructive action, it chages the given series.
So is this line necesary? Sort action may change its behaviour in the future? Or just a simple mistake?
     sort dir ;no need to set-word I guess?

Good catch :) I doesn't appear to be necessary:
dir: read %.
dir2: sort copy dir
sort dir
dir = dir2
== true

Should I post this to Altme or DevBase (Chat) or RT reads this forum?

It's not a bug, since sort does return the sorted series. If you'd like to bring it to Carl's attention anyways, Devbase is probably the best place.
