The attached shell program returns `AttributeError: module 'mod' has no attribute 'x'`. I would rather expect `ImportError` instead of loading an empty package due to permission error causing Python module to be inaccessible.

The attached example works on Python 2, but it breaks with Python 3. This may be a regression.
