[BUG][SHELL] Could Others Please Test This OS X/Linux

OSX 10.7.5 Terminal: 100,168 lines
LC Community 6.1: 294,140
LC Community 7.0 dp5:  294,140

However a quick check of the LC results shows files from /Applications/ 
, not /Users/.

The Terminal results 'correctly' (I assumed) list files from /Users/.

Hope this helps
