Ok, checked that.  Using the newer packages from the link above solves
the vfork problem with 'dired'.  However, then you'll hit a problem with
the busybox /bin/ls installed on the Nanonote.  To fix that second
problem, add the following line to site-start.el or .emacs :

 (setq dired-use-ls-dired nil)

Now dired works for me.  Going to add the fix to the emacs package.

Thanks for reporting.
