Yes.  I just tried it under tcsh and bash with 6000, 8000, and 8150 lines,
and it works for me.  LANG=en_US.UTF-8 implies LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8
but I also set LC_COLLATE explicitely and retried.  sort tt | head
always prints

  abcde    1xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    2xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    3xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    4xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    5xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    6xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    7xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    8xxxxx0123456789
  abcde    9xxxxx0123456789
  abcde   10xxxxx0123456789

and then returns to the prompt.
