Dear Bug Team!

If the size is less than 1000, then there is no problem
However if the size is > 1000, then when I press v on the file line,
then I see a buffer with the minutes prepended to the file name.
For example, there is a file build.xml that has size 2420 and
modification date is Dec 26 22:21.  The view of this file results in a
buffer with name 21 build.xml.  The buffer is empty (since that file
does not exist).

Please help me.  If you have questions or a fix please email me at
glennoph at
