ls -aA also shows . and ..; maybe it shouldn't?

You're right, it shouldn't. This was a bug I introduced in 2004 and I think you're the first to report it (!). In my defense, it wasn't officially a bug until POSIX.1-2008 came out and specified that -a and -A should override each other. Anyway, thanks. I installed the attached patch.
