When sorting files on a remote server by date, weird behavior occurs at the UTC month boundary. Sorting by ascending date puts files from 01 October (UTC) before files from 28, 29, and 30 September (UTC). Expected behavior would list files chronologically, with 01 October (UTC) coming after the others.
Both my computer and the remote server operate in America/New_York (currently UTC-04:00), so the start of October (UTC) was at 20:00 EDT on 30 September.
See attached screenshot.
