With process monitor, I made partial progress (after installing
the German Vista version). It looks like that there is an explicit
Deny ACL entry for read for Everyone in the Programme symlink.
As a consequence, os.listdir(r"c:\programme") fails, even though
os.listdir(r"c:\program files") succeeds. It looks like Tcl wants
to list the contents of the symlink (I'm not yet sure why), and
that this fails (ACCESS_DENIED).
