    If I uncomment the (setq dired-omit-files-p t) line (which is what I'd
    like to do), when I go into dired it constantly reverts the buffer
    which makes navigation painful, and an eye-sore with jit font locking.

    To get around this, I decided to just manually omit files each time I
    enter a dired buffer.  I hit M-o to omit, and it omits, then a few
    seconds later it reverts to the full listing.

    Am I missing something from my config?  Or is this a known issue with
    the version included in cvs emacs?

If you update your CVS and do _not_ set
`global-auto-revert-non-file-buffers' non-nil (it is nil by default),
the problem should be gone now.  I committed a patch late in the evening
of Feb 16, probably not very long after you downloaded your CVS
version.  I have a patch that will fix the problem even if
`global-auto-revert-non-file-buffers' _is_ non-nil, but I am waiting for
an OK to commit that second patch, which seemed less urgent than the
first, because `global-auto-revert-non-file-buffers' is a brand new
option (since Feb 16) and is nil by default.
