I'm afraid I can't reproduce it on GNU/Linux with 23.1, or with trunk.
Do you see the problem without customizations (-Q)?

yea, 100% reproduceable with -Q, but on Mac OS X only though.

if a folder has names like “2009-08-04 misc”, then emacs dired
will mistake the folder name being just “misc”, and basically
unable to open, move, delete the folder.

• switch to dired.
• type + then 2009-08-04 misc

• Now, you can see the coloring is wrong. Try to move, rename, or go
into the folder. Emacs complains
dired-get-file-for-visit: File no longer exists; type `g' to update
dired buffer

This happens on emacs 23.x on Mac. 100% reproducible.
