On a recent install of Ubuntu I discovered a new bug in 'ls' which I
understand you guys maintain.

Items with spaces are incorrectly listed surrounded by single quotes. This
is problematic for a number of reasons. One of which is that files or
directories that contain a mix of quotes in their titles are now displayed
incorrectly. This bug also breaks existing scripts all over the place.

Please resolve this bug on the next release.
