I did some quick tests with 2.0.7 on an old x86 box:

A directory with 5300 files, mostly jpegs, opening one jpeg with acdsee
(which does a dirlist ...)
with case sensitive = no it takes about 10 sec.
with case sensitive = yes it takes about 4-5 sec.

If I copy them to local hd its nearly instant ... Too bad I haven't got
a win* server to test against ...
