[jcifs] Security Correctness

I create a folder that is accessible (read/traverse rights) only to 
group A, then put a file inside that folder that is only readable by 
user Z (not in A). I then getSecurity() on the file, it will show that Z 
has read access to the file. However, if user Z actually comes along, 
she cannot read the file because she cannot traverse into the folder. Is 
there some way of getting the effective rights of a given file?
