ls -x produces a garbled listing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
"ls -x" or "ls --format=across" produces a garbled listing.
To reproduce, create a directory with the files a_file, b_file, ... i_file.
a_file b_file c_file d_file e_file f_file g_file h_file i_file
ls -x produces:
e_file b_file c_file d_file e_file f_file g_file h_file i_file
Notice that a_file is missing and e_file appears twice. This problem was not in
FC6 and is brand new with F7.
bug in coreutils, reassigning
bug is know to upstream, it was already fixed in CVS  2 months ago
