   Since the breadcrumbs is hierarchical, what I don't understand is how 
you ever end up in a situation where you're looking at object X which 
you've got permission to look at, while folder Y is appearing in the 
breadcrumb trail which you don't have permission to look at.
   Surely in this case when you try to access object X, it'll try to 
traverse down via folder Y and on hitting Y will not let you any 
further. (Unless you've done something a bit too clever with the 
   In other words, if you're looking at X, then obviously you MUST be 
able to see everything above X, in order to get to X. So how could the 
breadcrumbs possibly contain something you're not meant to see?  ;-)
   The breadcrumbs is autogenerated just like navigation. You'd have to 
  make your own version to get it to do what you're asking.
   Maybe I'm not understanding you correctly but it seems to me :
