[New-bugs-announce] [issue1075] py3k: Unicode error in os.stat on Windows

New submission from Amaury Forgeot d'Arc:

os.stat("nonexistent") raises a UnicodeDecodeError on German, Polish and
French Windowses.
The reason: Windows returns an error message which contains accented
letters encoded as MBCS, but python decodes it with utf-8.
This patch uses the Unicode version of FormatMessageW to get the unicode
string directly.
