I like the new behavior. The old behavior had security problems, since file names with unusual characters could confuse users into thinking that the file system was X when it really was Y. The new behavior avoids these problems, and so is safer and more predictable. You can resurrect the old behavior, if you like, by using a shell script called 'ls' that invokes /usr/bin/ls with the settings you prefer. However, the default settings should be safe, not risky.
