Please help me finding a way to implement os.path.issubpath(a, b)

I'm trying to implement a function which returns whether a path is a
subpath of another one (e.g. /a/b/c is a subpath of /a/b).
I wrote this function which apparently seems to work fine:
def issubpath(path1, path2):
"""Return True if path1 is a sub path of path2."""
if path1 == path2:
x1 = path1.split(os.sep)
x2 = path2.split(os.sep)
return x1[:len(x2)] == x2
...but if I use "issubpath('C:\\dir', 'C:\\')" it returns False.
A little help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
