Anyone seeing this as well? sort goes berzerk on my system when piped
head (or less) when it is fed with a 'specially prepared' input file.

  - only happens on x86_64
  - does not happen for 'LC_COLLATE=C sort tt | head'

'specially prepared' input file? (see bottom of post).
Anyone ** NOT ** seeing this?

Yes. I just tried it under tcsh and bash with 6000, 8000, and 8150 lines,

and then returns to the prompt.
Same here, at least using bash

Thank you to all. It is clear to me that I am the only one having this
weird behavior.
