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.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.00, Motif Version 2.1.0)
 of 2003-04-28 on rds294
configured using `configure  --cache-file=/dev/null 
 --x-libraries=/usr/lib/X11R6:/usr/contrib/X11R6/lib --with-x-toolkit=motif 
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil

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

Say I do a dired on a remote directory thusly:

  total 1648
  drwxrwxrwx   2 root       sys           8192 Aug  3  2000 IRIX
  lrwxrwxrwx   1 root       sys              6 Jun 18 14:44 IRIX64 -> ./IRIX

If I now try to dired the IRIX directory (by hitting the "f" key) I get :

  total 4944
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 root       sys         180784 Aug 17  1998 GNUgrep
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 root       sys         769128 Mar 28  2000 cfengine
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 root       sys         756336 Aug  4  1998 cfengine-1.4.11
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 root       sys         768992 Aug 14  1998 cfengine-1.4.12
  -rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              4 Jun  9  2000 ntp
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 root       sys            549 Jun  9  2000 ntpd
  -rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              4 Mar 17  2000 timed
  -rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              4 Apr 17  2000 timeslave
  -rw-r--r--   1 root       sys             12 Mar 17  2000 timeslave.options

which is what it is supposed to be.

But if I had instead tried to dired the IRIX64 (link to a directory), it gives


In other words, it doesn't list the files.

Can you tell me why it does that?  I don't think this failed in emacs 20.7...

Thanks for any help.
