thanks, but with dired-jump i go to the parent dir of the current dir. it
does show the dir, which contains thye file on teh urerent line.
eg. if the find buffer has the curernt dir C:/dev/img-select and in there
the cursor is on the line
-rw-rw-rw- 1 6264 Aug 11 12:34 source/XPImageList/AlphaImage.pas.
then dired-jump shows a dired buffer of the directory C:/dev. but obviously
i want C:/dev/img-select/source/XPImageList.
