I'm not very attached to the new behavior so feel free to apply this.
As per the original discussion, the change was made to distinguish
unreachable directories from empty directories.
Unreachable dirs are not common, but it seems useful for the user
to know they're in one

Thanks, I applied the patch. My feeling is that 'ls' is about listing directory contents, which is a different issue than reachability. A user wanting to know whether they're in an unreachable directory can use a reachability-tester, like 'pwd'.
