Mmmmm, I'm doing my best at understanding all you wrote!
(I always marvel at how noob I am!!!)

Currently, the rename script acts like this:

- analyzes the file name from the end finding al numbers
- keeps first sequence of number after the extension: in 03_001 it keeps 001
- sorts files with that sequence

That's why it has problems if files have more than one name pattern.

In the first example (03_XXX and CreditsXX) it tries to sort files after adding the first column:

000 03_000a.jpg
000 03_000b.jpg
000 03_000c.jpg
001 03_001.png
002 03_002.png
003 03_003.png
005 03_004-005.png
006 03_006.png
007 03_007.png
008 03_008.png
009 03_009.png
010 03_010.png
011 03_011.png
012 03_012.png
013 03_013.png
10 Credits10.png
11 Credits11.png

and that's why it places Credits10 after 03_010 and Credits11 after 03_011!!

I'm trying to reproduce windows' sort-by-name....but I'm not so good at shell scripting!

EDIT: I could cut the file list in pieces based on the filename. Than sort every piece and join the results...just thinking...
