This is what ls does when stat() returns an error. Older versions printed
an error message to stderr and omitted the file from the listing. If you
don't like the change, complain to whoever maintains 'ls'.

Well, you haven't said what happens when you try, but I'm going to guess
that you get an error message like "foo: Permission denied", which is what
happens when you try to access a file to which you don't have access.
Check the permissions on that directory, and your tokens.
