I think this is not fixed yet. The try/except clause is currently around certain loops whereas it should be around specific calls (is_dir, exists, listdir. and is_symlink). As it currently is, the behavior is dependent on the ordering of the names returned by listdir(), which is just wrong.

I think this is the root cause of the breakage reported in issue #26012.
