      Description

      I get a different response from dfs -ls depending on whether or not the
      ls contained a directory or a wildcard. The wild card misses the
      response that tells me how many files.

      It did indeed cause a problem with my scripts. It was easy to filter
      out. If it's a desired action to do it sometimes and others then that's
      it's ok. It doesn't seem like this is really the intention so I pointed
      it out. My script is now happy with both forms. I do really on the fact
      that the 3 column of the output is the file size. Perhaps I shouldn't be
      doing this but I am writing some automated scripts in python to drive
      hadoop so it is useful to check file sizes. If you were to provide a
      format string that would allow me to place the items in a specific
      format then you would be free to change it, whenever, however, you wanted.
