You're right, Vista64 is returning "win32" for the platform.
And ahh, I see what I did: in Python 2.5.2, _syscmd_file wasn't using a
sys.platform check. Then when I looked at the current version, I saw it
was still using "/dev/null", but didn't see a platform check was added
to skip that part in rev 66104.
Regardless, thanks for adding the change... who knows, it might get hit
some day on a new platform ;).
