If that's the issue, then it's not a good idea to call `stat' and
`readdir' on Windows at all.  `stat' is a single system call on Posix
systems, while on Windows it usually needs to go out of its way
calling half a dozen system services to gather the `struct stat' info.

Thanks to Marius Storm-Olsen we already have a stat replacement that's twice as fast as msvcrt's stat. I calls only one API function (GetFileAttributesEx, but of course I don't know what's going on under its hood), because we need only a small part of struct stat filled in correctly.
