It reports

        ls does not support --dired; see `dired-use-ls-dired' for more details.

but produces somehow a good directory listing with file names like (where the 
umlauts cannot be found, but that's another problem probably):

  -rw-r--r--   1 pete  admin       17 25 Mär  2010 o₂
  -rw-rw-r--@  1 pete  admin    32216 17 Nov  2002 RGB äöüæÆÜÖÄ.txt

Maybe I am misinterpreting this message. I am concerned because I had prepared 
for GNU Emacsen 23 and 24 customisation à la

         '(dired-listing-switches "-ahlN")

which are only OK for gls. Previously I could simply

        (setq dired-use-ls-dired "gls --dired")

now it's getting a bit confusing. Is gls found and used or is the ls emulation 
doing the job? It would be an improvement when GNU Emacs would also report what 
it will use to generate the dired buffers.

I see!



Don't just do something, sit there.
