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.

Instead, TAB behaves as if the only file in the directory is "invite".
It is as if some mischevious devil is in emacs which says "no, I won't
allow files to be visible; only files which I happen to like today (if
any) will be shown"!
