(Response to http://austingroupbugs.net/view.php?id=1013#c2985)
Similar problems occur with cd -P, and in my experience are more likely
than problems that occur with cd -L.

I frequently use sequences such as:

cd somedir
cd ../otherdir
cd ..

which work as expected with -L as the default if somedir or otherdir are
symlinks, but go wrong if -P is the default.

I doubt if I have ever used:

ls ..
cd ..

because it is more natural to use:

cd ..
ls
