It shows the problem:
$ mkdir noread
$ mkdir todelete
$ touch foobar
$ chmod 100 noread
$ cd noread
$ rm ../foobar
$ rm -r ../todelete
rm: cannot get current directory: Permission denied
$ which rm
rm (coreutils) 5.2.1
The test machine is tug.org (188.8.131.52).

| rm: cannot get current directory: Permission denied
Thus the failing program was "rm", not "cd".
The latter one would fail if the directory misses the executive permission.
