Topic ""Show inaccessible directories" not working as expected"

Author Message


When the option "Show inaccessible directories" in Preferences -> Panels -> Remote is unchecked, directories which are actually accessible to root are hidden if their ownership and permissions exclude root theoretically.

mkdir test
chown www-data:www-data test
chmod 700 test

test will be hidden although root can still access it. That just cost me quite a few nerves.
