One way to work around this would be to install a port of GNU ls, try
it with the --time-style=locale option, and if that produces the
format you want, then disable ls-lisp and use the ported ls as
. Set ls-lisp-use-insert-directory-program to t:
(setq ls-lisp-use-insert-directory-program t)
. Customize dired-listing-switches to "-al --time-style=locale"
(Note: no D in the switches, as someone suggested on
(setq dired-listing-switches "-al --time-style=locale")
I just tried this (with ls.exe from Gnuwin32), and it produces the
directory listing that I'd expect on my locale.
