It throws an IOError: ... No such file or directory: %path% instead of 
IOError: Invalid file name.

How do you know, in a cross platform way, that the name is illegal
instead that the file or directory does not exist?

This is not a bug in Python. The error that you get comes directly from
the operating system/C library, so please complain to your system vendor.
