ls uses quotes ?

paul@d:~$ mkdir newls
paul@d:~$ cd newls/
paul@d:~/newls$ touch a\ space
paul@d:~/newls$ ls
'a space'
paul@d:~/newls$ 
oh well...

paul@d:~/newls$ touch \'
paul@d:~/newls$ ls
''\'''  'a space'
What ?

Creepy. Linux is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. BSDs don't mess with userspace like that.

Trusty's ls doesn't do that. Sid will be Sid :)
