Thanks for the cultural education of 2.5.1 isn't supposed to work, I 
didn't know that.

Also I'm glad to hear this is fixed for 2.5.2 already.

Sorry I'm too new & ignorant to understand why you believe this is 
fixed. I don't see that we already have a way to say things like:

if not platform.system('Linux'):

Do we have a way to say things like that?

My first Googles, tried here now at Mac OS X, give me useless 
suggestions like:

>>> platform.platform(aliased=True)
>>> platform.system_alias(platform.system(), platform.release(), 
('Darwin', '9.0.0b5', 'Darwin Kernel Version 9.0.0b5: Fri Aug 17 
17:24:24 PDT 2007; root:xnu-1182~1/RELEASE_I386')

Practically speaking, I was getting by ok with:

if platform.system() != 'Windows':

Until that broke in Vista plus 2.5.1.
