Not a bug!
The -b affects where the columns of the key are counted from.
so (with -t:) the file:
is sorted with the leading spaces of the line removed, ie as if sorting:
So -k1.6,1.17 is just "000" for the line that only contains "50.40000".
There is enough whitespace in the other lines for the sort to act as if
the -b were absent.
