Okay, seems like Windows 7 GetFullPathName on conin$ and conout$ returns the path appended to the current directory, and you need to specify the full name as "conin$" or "conout$" to access the console - otherwise you have a file by that name.

We should include a comparison for these names exactly before using GetFullPathName.
