    (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.

ffap.el itself says:

;; For the default installation, add this line to your .emacs file:
;; (ffap-bindings)                      ; do default key bindings
;; ffap-bindings makes the following global key bindings:
;; C-x C-f              find-file-at-point (abbreviated as ffap)
;; C-x C-r              ffap-read-only
;; C-x C-v              ffap-alternate-file
;; C-x d                dired-at-point
;; C-x C-d              ffap-list-directory
;; C-x 4 f              ffap-other-window
;; C-x 4 r              ffap-read-only-other-window
;; C-x 4 d              ffap-dired-other-window
;; C-x 5 f              ffap-other-frame
;; C-x 5 r              ffap-read-only-other-frame
;; C-x 5 d              ffap-dired-other-frame
;; S-mouse-3     ffap-at-mouse
;; C-S-mouse-3   ffap-menu

That last part is muy importante.

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.

I think that would be a userful feature.
