You could try that but I'd imagine you'll end up with the same issue.
My best guess is that something is preventing os.path.isdir from
detecting the path as a directory under windows. I can't reproduce it
on my Linux system but may have a working windows installation later.
If I were you I'd fire up a python shell (execute python and get the
>>> prompt), import os.path and manually try os.path.isdir(path_name)
to try and find out what the actualy problem is.
