VFS.scan_tree uses listdir2, for performance, and that does lstat for each file. If the lstat fails, listdir2 fails, and scan_tree pretends the entire directory is empty. That's a problem: it should skip only the items for which lstat failed.

FUSE can cause the lstat to fail.

Thanks, weasel, for spotting the problem and trying things until we found the reason why his home directory was getting ignored.
