About UAC, I'm untouching now.
It is dicfficult to design and implement into 2.0.0, I guess.

If python does something to manage UNC, please tell me what python does :)

  • Target version changed from 2.0.0 to 2.6

Looks a feature request rather than a bug?
Anyway I postpone this ticket to next minor.
