Interestingly, looking at the code that returns the
"fshandler:get_data: \Webdav not found" message, it looks like it
tests that the path given exists and then tries an os.path.isfile,
then an os.path.isdir. If both fail you get the message that you see.
This might be a bit of a shot in the dark but could you try the path
with and without a trailing '/' or '\'? I don't currently have a
windows box available to test on and figure out why it would be
detected as existing but not test true for either a file or directory.
