Thanks Rudolph Froger for the bug report: the issue is now fixed in 3.7 and master (future Python 3.8) branches. Sorry for the delay.


Alexey Izbyshev wrote PR 5773 to also use fstat() on Linux.

I chose to merge my PR 12852 which is more conservative: it keeps dup() on Linux. I'm not sure why exactly, but I recall that the author of the function, Antoine Pitrou, wanted to use dup() on Linux.

I'm not convinced by the O_PATH issue on Linux (described above), so I merged my conservative change instead.

Later, we can still move to fstat() on Linux as well if someone comes with a more concrete example against dup().
