In Python 3.1rc1 (observed under Win32) standard library function 
shutil.copyfile(src, dst) has an unreferenced local variable "st" that 
causes the following exception in the calling code:

D:\> c:\Python31\python.exe copyDrivers.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "copyDrivers.py", line 20, in <module>
    shutil.copy( file1, file2)
  File "c:\Python31\lib\shutil.py", line 101, in copy
    copyfile(src, dst)
  File "c:\Python31\lib\shutil.py", line 62, in copyfile
    if stat.S_ISFIFO(st.st_mode):
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'st' referenced before assignment
