Hm.  The fact that the -1 is needed hints at some potential problem.
In the shell, ls behaves differently.  (The -1 is not needed there.)
So maybe some other programs break when used in a similar way?

(I guess the difference has to do with isatty(3).  No idea how
difficult would it be for eshell to do this right.)

What do people think?
