Excerpt from clisp-list:

2- POSIX:file-stat doesn't look like it is working on Windows.

[3]> (POSIX:file-stat "c:/foo/" nil)

*** - Win32 error 2 (ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND): The system cannot find the
file specified.

maybe because it's a directory?

NB:
1- it's working on regular files.
2- the workaround for the purposes of UIOP is to call probe-pathname.
