Here is a patch.

os.path.samefile and hard links don't work for Windows the same way they do for Mac/Linux. In the case where we are on Windows and a link comes into the _samefile function, check that it's a link and then use os.path.sameopenfile. If it's not a link but a regular file, or it's some other OS, do the os.path.samefile check.
