[OS X Emacs] Re: Return of dired mode problems like in Aquaemacs 1.7

It was not a proper fix but a workaround which was introduced in a
nightly build first. We had communicated via E-Mail.
I attach the last one.
The function that fixed last time the problem does not work in Aquaemacs 2.0

It is only some of the directories that cause the problem.
I assume that there is again a problem with Umlaute (ÄÖÜäöüß).

For the error I tried the debug mode:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument wholenump nil)
  decode-coding-region(1 470 utf-8-nfd)
  insert-directory("/Users/upi/tmp/" "-al" nil t)
  dired-insert-directory("/Users/upi/tmp/" "-al" nil nil t)
  dired-internal-noselect("~/tmp/" nil)
  run-hook-with-args-until-success(dired-noselect "~/tmp")
  find-file-noselect("~/tmp" nil nil t)
  (let ((value ...)) (if tabbar-mode (if ... ... ...) (if ... ...)
(switch-to-buffer value)))
  aquamacs-find-file-2("~/tmp" t)
  (if filename (aquamacs-find-file-2 filename) (call-interactively
(quote aquamacs-find-file-2)))
  (if (or (not one-buffer-one-frame) filename (< ... 2)) (if filename
(aquamacs-find-file-2 filename) (call-interactively ...)) (let (...)
(new-empty-buffer nil)) (let (...) (unwind-protect ... ...)))
  call-interactively(aquamacs-find-file nil nil)

Greetings from Berlin,
