ls and non-equivalence between -1 and single-column

The GNU coreutils documentation [1] suggests that "-1" and
"--format=single-column" are equivalent, yet the following two
commands produce different results:
  ls -l -1
  ls -l --format=single-column
According to POSIX [2] both behaviors are correct (for "ls -l -1"), so
I guess you need to pick one or update the docs.

tried with: coreutils package 6.10-3ubuntu2
