minor bug - No ".." directory gives error in ls

- Subject: minor bug - No ".." directory gives error in ls
In some cases when listing a directory in which there is no parent ls gives an error:
ls: ..: No such file or directory
If there was no directory then I would expect ".." to refer to "." like it does in the root of a unix partition. Specifically, this happens with network shares. To reproduce:
Where 192.168.168.0.2 is a server on which you have authenticated yourself or need no authentication, and 'shared' is a directory which has been shared. There should be no other resources available at 192.168.0.2 via CIFS other than the shared directory.
