os.path.split gets confused with combined \\ and /

just wonder how others solve this problem:
I've to distribute both python files and data files.
Everything is developed under windows and now the datafiles contains
paths with mixed \\ and /.
Under windows everthing is working well,
but under Ubuntu / Fedora sometimes strange errors occurs.
Now I was thinking that using os.path.split would solve all problems,
but if I've the following relative path
split will deliver the following under windows
path = path1 / path2
filename = filename.dat
while under Linux it will give me
path = path1
filename = path\\filename.dat
So I'm now planning to replace all occurences of os.path.split with a
call to the following function
def path_split ( filename ) :
# under Ubuntu a filename with both
# forward and backward slashes seems to give trouble
# already in os.path.split
filename = filename.replace ( '\\','/')
return os.path.split ( filename )
how do others solve this problem ?
Are there better ways to solve this problem ?
