I think the cause was when I moved to an SSD in this laptop and created the filesystems on the new disk by hand. > So we're clear, '/usr' (unmounted) is 700, but '/usr' (mounted) is 755? > Or is this not the case? This is exactly the case. What's confusing is the inconsistent use of the '/usr' (unmounted) and '/usr' (mounted) modes depending on circumstance. ie, non-root can cd and ls to '/usr' (mounted), but not '/usr' (unmounted), but can't resolve a relative symlink in that path.
