Please see "man csh":

	ls-F acts like `ls -CF', unless listflags contains
	an `x', in which case it acts like `ls -xF'.  ls-F  passes  its
	arguments  to  ls(1)  if it is given any switches, so `alias ls
	ls-F' generally does the right thing.

So if you use ls-F -l, the C shell will _not_ use ls-F, but
call /bin/ls instead. So what you've been observing seems to
be the intended behaviour.
