I don't think that the ownership/group permissions are the primary issue here.  
I tried another set where they are closer:

  drwxrwxr-x  284 0        3003        12288 Oct 11 19:00 gnu
  drwxrwxr-x    3 0        3003         4096 Mar 10  2011 gnu+linux-distros

I can reliably get into the gnu+linux-distros folder, but not the gnu folder, 
and here, the permissions and ownership seem to be the same.

In any event, here's the data for the temp file:

  -rw-rw-rw-  1 dpkatz Domain Users  22914 01-04 08:51 ange-ftp4032ZOy
