New submission from Alex Regueiro <alexreg at gmail.com>:

Python 2.7 has no knowledge of directory symlinks on Windows 7. Listing a directory symlink does not work, nor does accessing a file within one. This is quite a notable missing feature on Windows 7, where symlinks are becoming increasingly prevalent.
