I wouldn't have expected this to happen and have seen no evidence of it
here.  Perhaps 1.12.x changed some file or directory access in such a
way as to interact with your UNIX file system in a new way?  If you
could give us more specific information about how to reproduce this and
perhaps exactly which operations are failing?  Specific error messages
would be helpful, as would specific OS and client versions.
