Bug report: rsync does not always discriminate upper and lower case

Renaming does not touch the file - it only changes the directory
modification date.

And you are absolutely right. Panther preserves case but is insensitive to
case in file names :
>-rw-r--r--  1 ac  ac     0 27 Dec 11:59 a file named ABC
filetest -e "a file named ABC"
> 1
filetest -e "a file named abc"
> 1

Bad, bad Apple.
