    If the directory the task is in has been deleted then what is its path
    relative to the namespace ? This isn't theoretical because if your
    security profiles work on the basis of this path but do not prevent the
    deletion of the current directory or some node above it (or doing
    mkdir/chdir/rmdir sequences) an app may be able to subvert it by doing
    this deliberately.
