Antoine, I agree. I beg your pardon. This patch was suppose to be quite trivial, and "test_platform" passes just fine on my Linux and Solaris computers. And the four buildbots I was monitoring, the testsuite passed.

The suggestion of Marc-Andre of simply adding an "os.access()" to check for file existence first is quite sensible and would be enough and compatible in all platforms and python releases.

I am for backing out my patches so far and push a simple "os.access()" check. What do you think?.

Marc-Andre, I was wondering if you could elaborate a bit why 2.7 file should be able to run fine in 2.3 :-?
