Wait.  Are you saying that the new warning is "warning" against a
condition that is not an error?

For example, if it attempts to open a directory which does *not*
have to exist, and sees an error from opendir() due to ENOENT, then
I do not think it should be giving a warning.  If we positively know
that a directory should exist there and we cannot open it, of course
we should warn.  Also, if we know a directory should be readable
when it exists, then we should be warning when we see an error other
than ENOENT.
