For example, I just connected to a server where I have a user account. The info for .. shows:
changed=2/2/2007 8:18:03AM, owner=root, group=sys
I go up one level and look at my home, and the info reads:
changed=1/30/2007 1:45:30PM, owner=pnosko, group=users
Additionally, there is no directory/file in /home with the info displayed for .., so I have no idea where it's coming from.
