On my system (Ubuntu Karmic, Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Dec  7 2009, 18:45:15), Kernel 2.6.31-17-generic, libc6 2.10.1-0ubuntu16) the attached test script produces the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 27, in <module>
    raise OSError(err, os.strerror(err), path)
OSError: [Errno 0] Success: '/does/not/exist'

So the function call failed, but the errno provided by ctypes is zero.

(There are two variants of construction the getxattr() foreign function in the script and both produce the same result).
