Summary: incorrect locale.strcoll() return in Windows

Initial Comment:
Python 2.4.2 in Windows (English locale):

>>> import locale
>>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL,'C')
'C'
>>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL,'')
'English_United States.1252'
>>> locale.strcoll("M","m")
1
>>> locale.strcoll("Ma","mz")
-1

It appears that when a string has one character, "M" is
greater than "m", but when it has more than one string,
"M" is equal to "m"

greater than "m", but when it has more than one character,
"M" is equal to "m"
