Check that you are really running the ls command. Use the which command to see what ls you are running.

What version of UNIX?
Check that someone hasn't put an alias in for the ls command or haven't replaced ls with something else ( check the ls command with sum versus another system running the same version of OS).

Do you get a core file with the segmentation fault? If you do, you might be able to check it out to find the error (not easily done).

Try running the command with the full path to see if you get the same results (possibly /usr/bin/ls ). Can you run other commands with no problem?

Do you know how many files are in the directory that you are trying to list..... also are you using the ls command by itself or in conjunction with other commands on the same line also is it command line or in a script?.

More info needed.......
