So Oracle Newspeak now calls it an RFE if you want a real bug fixed, huh? ;-)

This is a real bug in procfs. Problem is, procfs can't do name-based
access checking because the directory has no path and comes back with
EACCESS. Same problem can happen with smbfs if the files no longer
exist on the server but the client still has an open filehandle to it
and a different process tries to access it through
/proc/$pid/fd/$fdnum. The advantage of Olga's testcase is that you
don't need a tricky smbfs/samba setup to reproduce.
