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.

  You're right, I get 'permission denied'
  I have a token and permissions are okay as far as I know. These same files can be accessed from a Solaris system.
  Did I get all the necessary rpms installed? An ACL compat issue?
