[New-bugs-announce] [issue10136] kill_python doesn't work with short path

New submission from Hirokazu Yamamoto <ocean-city at m2.ccsnet.ne.jp>:

When kill_python[,d].exe was called via short path,
no python processes won't be killed. This happens
because, directory path is compared via simple
wcsnicmp. If one is short path and another is long path,
wcsnicmp determines they are not same path. This patch
solves this issue with GetFileInformationByHandle's
File ID information.

Probably this won't happen so much, so priority is low.
