The sorted() function does not work properly with macosx.
Here is a script to reproduce the issue:

import locale
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "fr_FR.UTF-8")
a = ["A", "E", "Z", "a", "e", "é", "z"]
sorted(a)
sorted(a, key=locale.strxfrm)


The execution on MacOsX produces:
pierre:Flaubert pierre$ sw_vers -productVersion
10.10.1
pierre:Flaubert pierre$ python3
Python 3.4.2 (v3.4.2:ab2c023a9432, Oct  5 2014, 20:42:22) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin

import locale
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "fr_FR.UTF-8")
'fr_FR.UTF-8'
a = ["A", "E", "Z", "a", "e", "é", "z"]
sorted(a)
['A', 'E', 'Z', 'a', 'e', 'z', 'é']
sorted(a, key=locale.strxfrm)
['A', 'E', 'Z', 'a', 'e', 'z', 'é']


while it produces this on your interactive shell (python.org):
In [10]: import locale
In [11]: locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "fr_FR.UTF-8")
Out[11]: 'fr_FR.UTF-8'
In [12]: a = ["A", "E", "Z", "a", "e", "é", "z"]
In [13]: sorted(a)
Out[13]: ['A', 'E', 'Z', 'a', 'e', 'z', 'é']
In [14]: sorted(a, key=locale.strxfrm)
Out[14]: ['a', 'A', 'e', 'E', 'é', 'z', 'Z']

which is correct.
