[New-bugs-announce] [issue24120] pathlib.(r)glob stops on PermissionDenied exception

New submission from Gregorio:

Debian 8
Python 3.4.3

Path.(r)glob stops when it encounters a PermissionDenied exception.

However, os.walk just skips files/directories it does not have permission to access. 

In my opinion, the os.walk behavior is better because it doesn't prevent usage in situations where a single file/directory in a tree has restricted permissions.
