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 bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2005-03-18 on trouble, modified by Debian

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

Perform the following, in a shell:

% mkdir /tmp/Foo
% mkdir "/tmp/Apr 26 2004 (Camcorder)"

In emacs, bring up dired on Foo; C-x d "/tmp/Foo"
Mark the directory called "/tmp/Apr 26 2004 (Camcorder)"
M-: (dired-get-marked-files)


is what gets displayed in the echo area.
("/tmp/Foo/Apr 26 2004 (Camcorder)")  is the expected response.


This occurs in an emacs with -q and -no-site-init.
