Re: insert-directory function in Gnu emacs returns nil

Unless the problem is in fact with the 1.7 root...
I have 1.5 installed as c:/cygwin and 1.7 as c:/cygwin2.
Now running 1.7:
emacs> df /tmp
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
C:/cygwin2 58612732 40769352 17843380 70% /
The insert-dired function seems to invoke ls as follows,
from my "*scratch*" buffer:
(call-process "/usr/bin/ls" nil t "-la" "--" "/tmp")
(call-process "/usr/bin/ls" nil t "-la" "--" "/tmp/foo")
/usr/bin/ls: cannot access /tmp/foo: No such file or directory
(call-process "/usr/bin/ls" nil t "-la" "--" "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/tmp/foo")
So, ls finds something under the 1.5 root, but the 1.7 ones seems empty.

Excellent. Of course I wish to try this.
