no, it is right. In your case 'andy' has read/write access to [dir1]
but he is not able to see [dir1] if he wants to browse [/]. He has to
access it directly.

I'm using it in a similary way, though everybody has read access to
[/] so it's much easier for the users to find their own directory.
But you must not forget to deny access to every created sub directory,
* = r

* =
andy = rw

So everybody is able to read [/] but is not allowed to go deeper into
all the listed directories which do not belong to him.
