I just tried to replicate the bahvious on -RELEASE and it doesnt do it
for me I am afraid. I have tried using bash and also /bin/sh and /bin/csh

On all of them I get the expected behaviour that 'ls somedir' shows 'somefile'
properly. The lack of 'x' bits on the directory prevents me from changing
into it, but I can still see the files.
