Could someone elaborate on this:

I don't see why it isn't considered to be a bug.

The problem is that find(1) (and potentially other things using fts(3))
will fail with a cryptic error message when recursing across a
mountpoint where the underlying directory lacks read and execute
permissions. This happens despite read and execute permissions on the
mounted volume that allow directory listing and traversal.
