GNU Emacs 188.8.131.52 Bug: find-dired on Filenames with Spaces
when using GNU Emacs 184.108.40.206, calling find-dired, i got one of this:
2533274790481547 2 -rwx------ 1 h3 None 2994 Apr 28 20:52 xx\ saga\ of\ bsof\ 2011-07-22.html
note the backslash there.
when i move the cursor to that line and press Enter, i get:
dired-get-file-for-visit: File no longer exists; type `g' to update dired buffer
update doesn't help. Somehow, filenames with spaces causes the problem.
The problem also happens when calling dired-do-query-replace-regexp Q. It'll stop dead reporting file doesn't exist.
What could possibly be the problem?
GNU Emacs 220.127.116.11 (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601) of 2012-04-23 on MARVIN
(if starting emacs with
-Q, then another problem occur. It calls
Microsoft cmd.exe's find.
