Follow-up Comment #1, bug #18174 (project findutils):

It occurs to me that it's not entirely clear what expressions like 

find . -print -type u -ls 

should do.   At the moment, this problem doesn't exist because find doesn't
process files it cannot stat:-

address@hidden:/tmp$ ls -ld example
drw-r--r-- 3 james users 1024 2006-11-05 01:52 example
address@hidden:/tmp$ ls -l example
total 0
?--------- ? ? ? ?                ? example/leafdir
address@hidden:/tmp$ find example
find: example: Permission denied
