This bug is still present and annoying.
For me it appeared when running ismount on a nfs-mounted directory, when the user who runs python has no read permission inside the directory. Therefore the lstat on /mntdir/.. fails.
Attached a patch that fixes this by running abspath on the path.

Symlinks will also work because they are checked/excluded before the part of the code where the patch is in.

msg222528 is not related to the original bug and should be opened separately.
