> Background:
> This is usage of the Hyperbole action key on implicit buttons in a
> shell buffer directory listing (bash/ls). Some file or directory names
> appear to have unexpected results.
> Expected Behavior (General):
> Each file or directory in the listing will be interpreted as a
> pathname implicit button (regardless of whether the name could also
> match some other implicit button type in another context), and using
> the action key on it will visit that file or directory. This will also
> be reflected in the hkey-help output.
> Actual Behavior (General):
> Certain characters or patterns in names, and/or positioning of the
> names in the listing, cause the names to be interpreted
> incorrectly. Some names are interpreted incorrectly due to patterns in
> their own name, and some due to patterns in other names in the
> listing. That is, Hyperbole seems to be interpreting several names in
> the listing as one composite name.
> This can cause the Hyperbole action key to perform the wrong action,
> like visitng the wrong file or directory, or not acting at all.
