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.

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

Hi,

When LANG is set to sv_SE the directory listing uses a period (".") to
delimit hours and minutes.  The dired-move-to-filename-regexp
variable, defined in dired.el and used by dired-move-to-filename, only
allows colon (":") to delimit hours and minutes, and, consequently,
dired will only find file names older than one year.  By changing the
"HH:MM" definition in dired-move-to-filename-regexp from 
        (HH:MM "[ 0-2][0-9]:[0-5][0-9]")
to 
        (HH:MM "[0-2][0-9][:.][0-5][0-9]") 
dired works properly again.  I'm using gentoo linux.

Thanks for your effort, sincerely

Sven
