The original issue remains for me on v3.3.2. I can stat junctions in my 
user directory, but not in system directories. In v3.2 I can do that 
provided I am running with elevated privilege. If it's fixed in the next 
version that's great.

Python 3.3.2 (v3.3.2:d047928ae3f6, May 16 2013, 00:03:43) [MSC v.1600 32 
bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import os
 >>> os.stat(r'C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\SendTo')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file 
specified: 'C:\\Windows\\System32\\config\\systemprofile\\SendTo'
