I can not repro this.  The following program:
--
from win32file import *
import win32con
port = "COM1"
handle = CreateFile(port,
          win32con.GENERIC_READ | win32con.GENERIC_WRITE,
          0, # exclusive access
          None, # no security
          win32con.OPEN_EXISTING,
          win32con.FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL | win32con.FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED,
          None)
dcb = GetCommState( handle )
dcb.EvtChar = '\r'
dcb.ErrorChar = '\n'
print "worked"
--

prints "worked" when run.

The Help files are wrong here - they say "integer" for these member.  I 
have changed the help files, but the code seems fine from here...

Mark.
