I've looked at this module a couple times to try to find the bug, but 
I've never been successful. Creating it anew from either the data file 
itself or the upstream source results in a module with the same problem.

My only guess is that our sort function for writing the module is 
different from the sort function that reads the module (which I 
doubt--I'm pretty sure we use just one) or there is something in the 
sort function that is folding/ignoring some characters in the key, so 
that it is mapping some keys in reverse order.
