From a fresh build on Win10 with VS2017:

python -munittest -v test.test_ntpath.TestNtpath.test_nt_helpers

gives the following error:

FAIL: test_nt_helpers (test.test_ntpath.TestNtpath)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\work-in-progress\python\cpython\lib\test\", line 432, in test_nt_helpers
    self.assertEqual(drive, nt._getvolumepathname(sys.executable))
AssertionError: 'c:\\' != 'C:\\'
- c:\
? ^
+ C:\
? ^

Ad hoc, it appears that:

`sys.executable` gives a lower-case path while `nt._getvolumepathname` gives an upper-case drive letter.

While the test could be trivially fixed, it seems worth investigating a little further to see what's happening inside `nt._getvolumepathname`
