"don't descend"

What is the intended implementation of "don't descend".

a) treat all files that are in the "don't descend hierarchy as "no such file"
   (or equivelent)


b) disable opendir() on "don't descent directories", but allow (for example)
   stats on files that are in the "don't descend directories"

I would have expected the 1st. Sambe seems to be doing the 2nd.

is this intentional ?

thx, and rgds,
