Python doesn't see the directories I create
not at given.net

When I create a subfolder, python is not seeing it. Can someone please
explain this behaviour ? I just started with python, read the tutorial over
the weekend and am writing my very first script. So I may not be seeing
something. Both os.path and glob.glob seem not to see a folder I created.
Other sibling folders seem to work fine. On a whim I tried paths with \\
double slashes and that worked. But why should single slashes work for some
folders and not for others ??
What I need is to match a bunch of files in a folder with
glob.glob(C:\enhancement\rawfiles\*.bin.gz) and send them to a function that
unzips them. But I always get . Yes the folder does have my files, and I
checked all permissions etc, everything looks identical to the other folders
which python IS seeing. Same problem on my vista pc too.
Behaviour reproduced below.
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 8056-41E7
