preleminary fix

The actual problem is, that non-readable folder are not loaded into the model
of the tree-view, even if the path of the current working directory contains

The bug is triggered when thunar attempts to mark the related folder in the
tree as "selected".

Thunar walks through the tree to identify the correct folder starting with the
tree-root. If there is a non-readable folder in the way, thunar does not give
up the search :) 

The patch stops the search if a non readable folder was found.
This is not a full fix, it just cures the worst symptoms.

Still a problem is, that the complete subtree after a non-readable folder will
not be displayed in the tree-view if a sub-directory of the non-readable folder
is loaded.
