It seems that Windows has been "patched"...
open("COM").read() does not hang: it reads from the console until you
hit Ctrl-Z.
Testing on Windows 2000, some device names always succeed, others fail
with IOError when you open them or write to them.

The behavior seems correct to me (except of course this very concept of
special device names), and matches the expectations of the OP.
