One thing to look at would be kernel versions; not all kernels support openat 
and friends, so on older kernels, the fts traversal algorithms have to fake 
openat by using chdir, but on newer kernels, there are no chdir.  Meanwhile, it 
may be worth begging the kernel and glibc folks to consider implementing 
lgetxattrat and friends.
