I committed the code you speak of (posix__getfinalpathname in Modules/posixmodule.c), but I don't know if I have a great answer for that question. It looks like VOLUME_NAME_NT (path with volume device path) should just be changed to VOLUME_NAME_DOS (path with drive letter). In fact, I think it would be more "accurate" since NT yields with a larger path, thus we over-allocate up front before we go on and use DOS and then trim the target path down.

Jason (author of that function, added as nosy) might have some other input as to why he used VOLUME_NAME_NT there.
