I recall thinking that the condition was superfluous for most cases (due
to how we cache the local permissions when preserving is off), and that
I wanted to see when 'p' would pop in the output (indicating that a
permission change had unexpectedly happened).  Since you've shown that
this can be confusing in the link-dest case, I'll change it back.

Thanks, that should be fixed now.
