"Import Image sequence" order with APFS file system

lechristophe
Hi,

With the newer APFS Apple file system since Mac OS 10.13, commands that use
lists of files in folders are returning files in random order. This has
been corrected in several places, but I found one that still isn't: the
"Import Image Sequence" command does not sort files alphabetically for the
returned stack. The "sort numerically" option still works of course, but it
would be nice to have the alphabetical sorting by default, similar to how
the command behaves in other OSes and file systems.

The File>Import>Image Sequence command in the latest ImageJ daily build (1.52m2) aways sorts file names on macOS.
