You blew my cover ;-)

Yes, my current working hypothesis about this is that `ls' produces
something that confuses Dired.

Emacs 20 supported quite a few non-English formats; Emacs 21.1
supports even more.  Some of these formats are specifically targeted
to Japanese environments.  So it should work, at least in principle.
However, it's possible that we need to add yet another regexp in
dired-move-to-filename-regexp ;-)
