<lots of lines snipped>

lstat64("ls-fail", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=6932, ...}) = 0
	getxattr("strace.ls", "system.posix_acl_access", (nil), 0) = -1
	EOPNOTSUPP (Operation not supported)

 	{st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=95416320, ...}) = 0


and there it sits waiting for heat-death-of-universe.

To cope with line-wrapping I've tabbed extensions in
 and put an extra newline at real line breaks.
Looks like Grip is setting some strange ACLs.
ls -l as root still hangs though.

For Nemo:
ls -lb		hangs
ls -lN		hangs
ls -l > file	hangs

It's not a character causing the trouble, my current problem file is:


 and I've set permissions, owner, group, timestamps to sensible values.
