Actually, you're just seeing the repr() of the filename.
You really are missing that file in the place where it's
looking.  Note the similarity in the last two errors here:

 >>> open('test/this')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'test/this'
 >>> open('test\\this')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'test\\this'
 >>> open(r'test\this')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'test\\this'
