Hi, I think it is a frequently requested feature to open files or sub dir =20= in dired using the same buffer. perhaps it can be made as a preference in custome-group? in gnu.emacs.help, Leo suggests that people file a report here or =20 else it'll not happen. So here it is. (i think Leo is a emacs =20 developer. If not, sorry.)
