    If you run the "sort" command from the command line, does it show everything you expect to see?

    I don't know the solution to your problem. I don't even understand the problem. But can't you use, in stead of:
    Code:
    dialog --backtitle "New entry" --inputbox "Surname:" 20 50 4> temp
    f=`cat temp`
    something like
    Code:
    f=`dialog --backtitle "New entry" --inputbox "Surname:" 20 50 4`
    Looks a lot better to me.
