Bug in "ls"

I just installed RedHat 7.1.  The "ls" utility does not function
properly.  The version is:

    Z86) ls --version
    ls (GNU fileutils) 4.0.36
    Written by Richard Stallman and David MacKenzie.

 Accorinding the the manual,

   These options change the order in which `ls' sorts the information
   it outputs.  By default, sorting is done by character code (e.g., ASCII

When I "ls -a" my main directory, I get:

    Z82) /bin/ls -a
    .              Files            .muttrc                        term

    exin           .msgid.cache     tar

This is not in ASCII order.  I can find no flag for "ls" which
corrects this bug.
