That's some compatibility code outside of rsync, since rsync doesn't change the
case of names.  Back in the old days, a filesystem could only hold upper-case
letters.  When mixed case came into effect, some folks wanted to display an
all-upper-case name as lower-case to make it look better.

Check with the cygwin folks, as there is probably a mount option available to
avoid this translation.  Or make sure that your file suffixes are always in
lower case (e.g. CRW_1951.crw).
