Weird question maybe, but what permissions should the ".." directory
entry have that sits in /home/<user>?
I'm getting some weird behaviour from grep -r (in my home directory it
appears to be traversing up the .. entry and trying to access other
users' files) and wondering if the permissions are the cause.
