  | mhshow: error reading from /tmp: Is a directory
  |         (content text/plain in message /tmp)

Some systems don't allow reads of directories, traditional unix, and
many other systems just treat a directory as a (read-only) file, and you
can read it like any other file (and on those, readdir() is sometimes just
a wrapper that calls read(), and knows a little bit about how much to
hand back each call.)
