Bug report #17481

2.18.14 crashes if opening a project from a read only network share.

I use sometimes read only file shares to protect a project which was created in a different version from being accidentally overwritten by a project version from an older edition of qgis.

In previous versions of 2.18 when the project was opened from a read only file share everything worked, now it just crashes every time.

I have now checked and found the share I am using is NOT read only and therefore the error messages I am getting appear to be completely unrelated to the network share.

The last few messages in the terminal are
Warning 4: Failed to open filename.shp, Permission denied.

Opening a different project from the same share opens satisfactorily.

I am testing with several versions of the software to see if other versions have this problem.
