Yeah, it seems that's how dired operates: it inserts the output from
"ls -l" into the buffer and then does operations on that buffer to
find the file name and suchlike.

Hm.  And the "ls -l" output contains not only the file names, it also
contains the dates.

I was going to suggest to have dired-find-file bind
file-name-coding-system to the value used for reading the "ls -l"
output, but that will break when the date and the file names use
different encodings.
