The new f-a-d-p completely ignores permissions, and it
looks like it is called in all directory check contexts before
changing directory or running a process with it as cwd, so
I don't see any way it can refuse to try to cd to a directory.

As for "anything else": I wonder if it will tell me I cannot
start a process to execute a regular file on my share...
