David, this is a bug in Python, and the proposed patch is insufficient. We use the volume serial number as st_dev, and this is not guaranteed to be unique in Windows, and may be 0, just as a file's index number is also allowed to be 0. Both possibilities are well documented. With a WebDAV volume you will find that both numbers are 0. Using the VSN and file index as if they're the same as POSIX st_dev and st_ino is technically wrong. There is no guarantee that this tuple uniquely identifies a file in Windows.
