looks like something in your shell is segfaulting, probably not
ls ?(the errors above reference sh)

try calling ls directly.

also check your profile. also run

file /bin/ls

another thing would be to run strace as well:

strace /bin/ls apostrophe\'inname/

I wouldn't expect something as basic as ls to ever break, it probably
hardly ever changes :/
