This change was lying around for quite some time; apparently, since
before these bugs were fixed. I just committed it today in a cleanup.
I guess I misunderstood the maintainers' intention: I thought that "-b"
was not supposed to be supported and was in the docs by mistake.
I will revert the change. Sorry.

Indeed, it appears that the space in a file name is now handled both
with and without "-b"; before I saw 
(error "File no longer exists; type `g' to update dired buffer")
on access with "-b".

Now I see the above error __WITHOUT__ "-b" for files with newline in
names. __WITH__ "-b" dired can handle files with newlines in names.
