Sounds like a regression to me. However, errno 5 is EIO.
Normally, you should get PermissionError(errno=13, EACCES).
I could understand EROFS as well. This sounds like a bug in
the VM software, which really should report EROFS if the volume is
read-only, not EIO.

You might want to check whether this really is a regression;
in any case, I consider Python's reaction reasonable and then
your setup as just not supported. However, I could also accept
that a work-around is added for treating EIO also as an ignorable
error. In any case, this is a separate issue.
