Description Gary Lawrence Murphy 2006-06-27 13:15:37 EDT
Description of problem:
When using dired in a console, such as with emacspeak or via ssh login, only
some files are recognized, others are said to be "no file on line" -- a
websearch of this error message leads to the Emacs FAQ, but the advice there, to
use US date format, does not apply (it is clearly already US date format) and
even changing the dired listing options to "-lt --color=never" does not solve
the problem for every filename.  the dired regex looks fine, so I wonder if
there is some problem with the emacs distro, or with the console/gnome-terminal

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
dired on a directory containing C-language files, try to load any .c or .h file
by hitting return with the cursor on that line; you get the error, but when on
the TODO or Makefile, the file loads into the editor as expected.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
