ls-lisp-insert-directory calls directory-files-and-attributes incorrectl

ls-lisp.el defines function ls-lisp-insert-directory.

ls-lisp-insert-directory does:
  (setq wildcard t)
and then
  (directory-files-and-attributes dir nil wildcard t)
but the 3rd argument to directory-files-and-attributes, MATCH, should
be a string, a regexp, not t.

This is causing me problems if I try to use dired on a Windows box to
rename a file from "foo" to "foo[1]".  The file actually does get
renamed correctly but an error is triggered when Emacs tries to
update the dired display:

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp t)
    directory-files-and-attributes("foo[1]/" nil t t)
    ls-lisp-insert-directory("foo[1]" (97 108 100) nil nil nil)
    insert-directory("foo[1]" "-ald" nil nil)
    dired-insert-directory("c:/foodir/" "-ald" ("foo[1]"))

Exactly what I did?  I made a file called 'foo' in a directory, I did
a "C-x d RET" to dired the directory.  I used 'n' repeatedly to step
to the file and then typed "R foo[1] RET" to rename the file.
