Ahem.  This doesn't run.  os.path.split() returns a tuple, and calling  
os.path.splitext() doesn't work.  Given that replacing the entire loop  
contents with "print l" readily disproves your assertion, I suggest you  
cut and paste actual code if you want an answer.  Otherwise we're just  
going to keep saying "No, it doesn't", because no, it doesn't.

When you do what, exactly?
