parentscan_path(): Improve handling of inaccessible directories (diff)
scan_path(): Do not recurse into hidden directories by default
Paths that start with a period ('.') are considered hidden in the Unix world. scan_path() should arguably not recurse into these directories by default. This patch makes it so, and introduces the "scan-hidden-path" config variable for overriding the new default and revert to the old behaviour (scanning _all_ directories, including hidden .directories).
