dired mode confused by file that contains a newline character


From: Daniel Barclay
Subject: dired mode confused by file that contains a newline character
Date: Tue, 07 May 2002 20:29:03 -0400

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.2 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Tue Jun 20 2000 on raven
configured using `configure  i386-debian-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr 
--sharedstatedir=/var/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --with-pop=yes --with-x=yes --with-x-toolkit=yes'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Actions:

I created a file whose name contained a newline character.  

(Yes, I know that's not normally a good thing to do.  I'm testing some 
things, and thought trusty Emacs dired mode would be a convenient way to 
clean up my directory.)

I deleted the file,
- in one case, by typing 'd' on the dired buffer line and then typing 'x' (and 
  confirming)
- in another case, by typing 'm' on the dired buffer line and then typing 'D' 
  (and confirming)

Emacs deleted the file, but...

Symptom:

... the dired buffer was not updated to reflect the deletion.  

Additionally, typing 'g' to refresh the dired buffer didn't remove the 
(split) line for the deleted file.
