           Summary: Problems with uppercase extensions on fat32
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: core

When i try to copy files from a samba-mounted ntfs-Server on Debian to a remote
fat32 Partition on Debian, i get problems with uppercase file extensions.
I assume that the problem is only given when i use the delete option.

For example rsync shows me:
deleting group/Ausschreibung/Ausschreibung/Statistik/jh92c3~1.xls

In fact the new file on the target server is:
$ ls /backups/tsk/group/Ausschreibung/Ausschreibung/Statistik/

The partition ist mounted on the right way with option "shortname=mixed". I can
create JH92C3~1.XL on the target Server, but rsync can't. So rsync trys to
delete an update everytime the same files.
