And in the nasty case where ls can't get enough mem to work or
more likely with me you have amusingly shafted your shared libraries
(or I suppose if you reckon its a trojan ls) then you can use echo * as
its built into tcsh and flailing away with tab with bash should do the
same as I think echo isn't built in there.
