I think that you must think that 'drwxr-x--x' means something
different than it does.  Seeing this permission in ls means that the
user (owner) of the directory has read, write, and execute privileges, 
that people in the same group as the owner have read and execute
privileges, and that anyone else has only execute privilege.  Did you
perhaps mistype the above and leave out the word "not" somewhere?
