           Summary: numeric sort fails for large integers
           Product: Busybox
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5

  Target Milestone: ---

Hi, I'm running BusyBox v1.25.1 (2016-12-19 05:23:39 CET).

I can reproduce the problem like this:

$ { echo 4294967296; echo 4294967295; echo 4294967297; echo 2147483648; echo 6;
} | sort -n

Clearly, the first three values should come at the end as they are the largest.
