Can you be more specific? Are you saying that you applied a SACL to a
single file to only monitor the use of the "Traverse folders" permission for
some group of users? And now you're seeing multiple object access events
for that file?

My first thought is that that is not really a meaningful permission to
audit. What behavior are you trying to monitor?
