(Emacs 24.3.1 i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601 of 2013-03-17 on MARVIN)
Emacs dired of
C:Windows/System32/config displays only the directories:
in the directory.
Windows Explorer displays 33 other files, mostly ".LOG", ".LOG1" or ".LOG2" files, but also
My original suspicion was that the content of that directory is accurately displayed by dired (i.e. the files are not really there) but a cygwin ls -al shows the files that dired does not display. Is this one of Windows7 misdirections or is my Emacs config wrong or ...?
