insert-directory function in Gnu emacs returns nil
Wed May 13 14:54:00 GMT 2009
Symptom: systematically empty dired in Gnu emacs,
no error message.
I first posted as a followup to an old message reporting the same symptom,
but this only confused the matters, as the cause was then probably
linked dll data write copy failed errors
I do suffer from bloda-like problems (intermittent vfork failures), but this
seems to be non related, since it is systematic.
I may occasionally get a vfork error too, but this is then reported.
I debugged the elisp part down to the call to:
insert-directory is a compiled Lisp function in `files'.
(insert-directory FILE SWITCHES &optional WILDCARD FULL-DIRECTORY-P)
This one just returns nil, whatever the arguments:
(insert-directory "/home/emagiro" "-la")
(insert-directory "/tmp" "-la")
The variable: insert-directory-program is set to the default "ls", which is
my path and works otherwise. Changing it to the full path doesn't affect
Gnu emacs is 21.2.1, and cygwin 1.7.
I already posted my cygcheck output.
