I think I have the same problem (though with 'the', 'a', and 'an').  I'm
also using Tellico 1.3.5 (KDE 3.5.10) in Gnome on Ubuntu 9.04.  I only see
this with *one* of my collection files, though; it was only my DVD
collection, which I don't open too often, so this issue didn't really bother
me and I never spent a lot of time investigating it.  My books collection
file, with many more entries, works as expected.

I just verified that the title field is set to "Format as a title" and "Auto
format titles and names" is selected.

Would you like me to attach a copy of my DVD collection file?  I trimmed it
down to just 3 entries and still saw the sorting issue.

Maybe it's worth noting: the issue shows itself by not formatting the title
properly, so for example "A Life Less Ordinary" is displayed as "A Life Less
Ordinary".  After the workaround (make and apply a change to the list of
articles), the title is displayed as "Life Less Ordinary, A".
