It's not a matter of reading carefully. It's the "ucc.exe" in the error 
message that threw me.

I was able to reproduce this by adding the -nohomedir switch. If I don't 
add that, I can list the contents of the umod just fine. Odd that you'd 
need write permission just to list the contents of a file . . .

Regardless, you are absolutely correct. You, sir, are the proud owner of 
a bug. The "ucc.exe" part of the error must just be a straggler from the 
Windows-specific code.
