The FAT longname stores the case used when the file is created as it,
but allows either case to match it on open.  If you have already existing
filesystems where one has "Foo" and the other has "foo", then the problem
I'm trying to work around arises.

That's the only reason I sent it.

This problem happens on more than just Linux.
