Fwd: GNU coreutils 6.9 - bug in ls

Hello again,

I have figured out the steps required to reproduce the error.
I have the file with following name "-^mininova.org^- 23 (1998) - Espionage.Conspiracy.Hacking.TrueStory - Subs.torrent" (without the quotes) stored in /usr/watch. It was downloaded from the internet using Opera browser and that filename is causing problems, maybe because the "^" character is not being escaped properly with slash during the manipulation with it? My filesystem is ext3.

I have founded a weird bug in coreutils, probably it's in ls.
sh-3.2$ cd /home/user/watch
sh-3.2$ ls *
ls: invalid option -- ^
sh-3.2$ which ls
sh-3.2$ cd ../
sh-3.2$ ls *
(files from /home/user are displayed)
sh-3.2$ ls --version
ls (GNU coreutils) 6.9
