ntpath.splitdrive was updated in patch 26ec6248ee8b. (I think this was released in 2.7.8.)

This changes the behaviour of splitdrive for UNC style paths. Previously:

>>> ntpath.splitdrive(r'\\nancy\foo\bar')
('', '\\\\nancy\\foo\\bar')                                                                                                              
>>>     

Now:
>>> ntpath.splitdrive(r'\\nancy\foo\bar')
('\\\\nancy\\foo', '\\bar')
>>> 

The documentation should be updated to say the same.

This was updated in the Python 3 docs:
https://docs.python.org/3/library/os.path.html#os.path.splitdrive

The 2.7 docs are no longer maintained.
