(Re sorting slide19.png before slide2.png)

It should give you the option.

I tend to live in the terminal and not use file browsers, but I think a canonical sorting order used by all File Open dialogs, file browsers, and the like should be observed. It should be a desktop setting that all clients obey.

And a very good solution it is, too. Much better than the GNOME solution which is "Don't give users any options."

I would say neither is entirely true and neither is always give a good thing to do. Sometimes pushing the choice to end users is absolutely the wrong thing and I think KDE does that way too often and GNOME has gone the other direction too much as well although compared to prior versions within the major release, there has been some course corrections. Personally, I would love to see more focus on sharing interfaces and low level implementations such as standardizing on default ordering of apps in a cross desktop way
