On Windows 8:

>>> fnmatch.fnmatch(r'foo\bar', 'foo/bar')
True
>>> fnmatch.fnmatchcase(r'foo\bar', 'foo/bar')
False

This is due to fnmatch calling os.path.normpath on the arguments (to get the case-sensitivity of the filesystem), which on Windows *also* happens to normalize / to \.

It's probably a bad idea to change the behaviour now, but I think at least this should be clarified in the docs.
