Meyer, Tony enlightened us with:

Seems you're using windoze.

Windoze has a case insensitive filesystem, and thus it can't see the
difference between FCNTL and fcntl. Try removing the depricated FCNTL
from your harddisk, or rename it to FCNTL-dep.py.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
