I'd been thinking of removing that initial stat() on all platforms,
under the argument that it's redundant and that on modern platforms it
requires traversal of the file name twice instead of once.

However, I haven't had time to remove the call, and make sure things
don't get much slower in the common case.  Most likely some tuning
will be needed.
