So I guess we've achieved general agreement:

1. The particular case and bug that Eli described is best fixed with a
more traditional PATH search.
2. What to do about the more general case of an opendir/readdir
failure, when making legitimate use of the caching function, is still
undetermined. Is it better to fail, as now, but with a somewhat better
error message or continue with a warning that files in that directory
will be ignored?

Do I have that right (finally)?
