    (define-key dired-mode-map "\C-x\C-f" 'find-file) ; override
                                                      ; ffap-bindings

Well, that wasn't the real point of my posting, but yes, that would do the
trick for `C-x C-f' in Dired. However, ffap.el does a lot more in Dired, and
there are other such bindings to override.

I no longer use ffap.el, but when I did, I added an option to inhibit it,
and set the option as a local variable when in Dired mode. That might be
overkill, but it accomplished what I wanted.
