bug#18475: 24.4.50; Wdired: cannot use C-k to delete a dir name if -F sw

Subject: bug#18475: 24.4.50; Wdired: cannot use C-k to delete a dir name if -F switch used

The `wdired-mode' doc string says: "If you delete the filename of a
file, it is flagged for deletion in the Dired buffer."  And (emacs)
`Wdired' says: "To mark a file for deletion, delete the entire file
name."

And this applies to directory names also.

No problem, except if you use `ls' switch `-F', which appends `/' to
directory names.  In that case, if you try to use `C-k' anywhere on the
dir name text, you get the error "Text is read only".

(Yes, you can use other deletion keys besides `C-k' to delete the dir
name but not delete the `/'.  That looks weird and is not easily
guessable by users, but it works.  `C-k' should work also, as one would
expect.)
