Default sorting by name and putting directories first seems most intuitive to me.

Not sorting by Name, but by the 'Modified Date' is the most common use-case. Allowing users to sort by column-name will be really desirable, Firefox has it.

The option to sort by column name is a must.

Closing old bug as obsolete. Please file a new bug (with details) if this problem is still occurring for you.

Is closing an old bug that's really a feature-request the intended process here? We can certainly file another bug, but I would have guessed that the point of closing old bugs was because they might have just evaporated in re-implementation churn...

As noted by pdknsk, this was actually fixed. Duping to the bug under which this was done.
