Ah - now I understand what you think we're doing. Take
heart - we're *NOT* doing that. We do exactly what you
suggest, which is to scan the directory and cache the
relevent mappings to a case-insensitive version of the
names within it.

The stat is done to check if the mapping is still valid.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
