My build slave shows a test failure at test_dont_copy_file_onto_link_to_itself. This happens because the implementation of _samefile in Lib/ (line 70) doesn't work for Windows hard links.

Patch on the way.

Here is a patch.

os.path.samefile and hard links don't work for Windows the same way they do for Mac/Linux. In the case where we are on Windows and a link comes into the _samefile function, check that it's a link and then use os.path.sameopenfile. If it's not a link but a regular file, or it's some other OS, do the os.path.samefile check.

This hasn't been an issue for quite some time, and I suspect the follow-up work on symbolic and hard links and their supporting functions corrected any problems in this area.
