I have the same issue with files copied to a compact flash memory card. The 
embedded OS of the target hardware can only present the files in the order 
they were copied. :-(

The workaround I found is as follows:
- Open a Konsole (or whatever you want)
- Move all the files in a subfolder and back again

mkdir tmp
mv * tmp
# Bash complains about copying tmp/ into itself
# - that's perfectly correct and without consequence
mv tmp/* .
rmdir tmp
