I can try to patch it but stat() does not seem to be the problem. I've
made a quick test and stat() seems to work OK on UNC paths (gcc &
tcc). I suspect there may be some file parsing doing on but I don't
see where.

I should mention that I tested with TL's texlua
(beta-0.40.6-2009110118) but I get the same with
beta-0.52.0-2010031700 (rev 3515).
