Can someone explain the following? If not, I'll send a PR. Oddities abound.

satserv1-1 /usr/pkg/share/httpd/htdocs$ ls -l | grep programs
drwx---r-x  3 web  web  1536 May  3 10:50 programs
satserv1-1 /usr/pkg/share/httpd/htdocs$ cd programs
/bin/ksh: cd: /usr/pkg/share/httpd/htdocs/programs - Permission denied
satserv1-1 /usr/pkg/share/httpd/htdocs$ whoami

With mode 0755, I can cd into there. With mode 0705, I cannot.
