New submission from Michael Pelletier <mvpel at yahoo.com>:
This emerged during a fault in a fileserver mounted on a Linux machine via a Samba client mount. The access to the mountpoint was being blocked by the fileserver, but os.access() wasn't able to recognize it as unreadable:
>>> os.access('/opt/xray', os.R_OK)
>>> s = os.stat('/opt/xray')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/xray'
Python version is 3.6.8.
