-L is supposed to print files without matches.

   −L, −−files−without−matches
       Only print the filenames of files that do NOT match. This is
       equivalent to specifying −l and −v.

However, this is wrong. -l -v actually prints files that have at least one non-matching line, and not what we want -L to do, which is to print files that have only non-matching lines.

This needs a fix and a test, although chances are this will not get fixed in ack 1.x. I've added it as a ticket to the ack2 project. petdance/ack2#210
