i have Gentoo running on both of my laptop's, both running same software and version's with exception of hardware.

one day while troubleshooting gtk-redshift, i executed 'qlist redshift' i was trying to figure out why gtk-redshift in laptop one was not using the hicolor icons and defaulting to a white box with a red X.
i confirmed that the icons are installed an present as well as x11-themes/hicolor-icon-theme.

my next step was to compare it to laptop two, i was going to run strace,qlist etc etc. it was then when i noticed that laptop one and laptop two both had the same output for qlist redshift but in different order. my question is why is the order different should it not be the same? and could difference in order be laptop one's gtk-redshift hicolor theme's culprit?.

i am running x11-misc/redshift-1.7 on both laptop's, here is the code output for both laptop's.

 ~ # qlist redshift

slicktux ...

this could probably be explained by the locale or perhaps nls being enabled. The list generated in /var/pkg/<category>/<package>-<version>/CONTENTS will have its specifications defined by LC_COLLATE and these differ in alpha-numeric ordering (note the above lists are reversals of one another). At least that is the most likely cause.
