The patch lower()s the file names on Windows. The tests break on my
system because C:\\... != c:\\...

Shouldn't this use os.path.normcase() instead of testing for nt and
using lower()?

A slightly modified patch, which uses os.path.normcase before comparing
file names.

Ah, os.path has a method for the job. I should have checked the module
before reinventing the wheel ... 

For some unknown and mysterious reasons the inspect tests are passing
again on my machine. I've purged the pyc files before I run the
unpatched test suite. Should I apply the patch anyway?

Yes, the patch is needed.
The problem arises when you run the python executable in different ways
WITHOUT deleting the .pyc files.

Example on my machine: Note that the exact path to run python is not the

>cd C:\dev\python\py3k\PCbuild8
>del /s ..\*.pyc
>c:\dev\python\py3k\PCbuild8\win32debug\python_d.exe -E -tt
../lib/test/ -v test_inspect
[test OK]
>C:\dev\python\py3k\PCbuild8\win32debug\python_d.exe -E -tt
../lib/test/ -v test_inspect
[test FAILED]

If I always use the same path the tests succeed.

Applied to py3k in r58875. I'm doing a svnmerge later. Thanks again for
your help, pal!
