happiness and joy w/ 2.1.47 (or problems w/ access())

it looks like 2.1.47 still hasn't achieved dentry
perfection. access("file/.", F_OK) returns 0 despite the fact that
"file" is not a directory. even better, this only happens for root as
far as i can tell.

also, i've been trying to track down a problem w/ a program that's
dying on me. it's generating an exception for which i would like to
figure out the cause. is there a way to transmogrify the exception
address into something useful like the calling function?
