case sensitive hostnames?

Are there any systems out there that have case sensitive hostnames?
I'm pretty sure that internet hostnames are not case sensitive and
there is some code in Samba that assumes this.  The problem is that
doing multiple unecessary dns lookups compounds the effect of
broken dns servers.

Does anyone know if this will break some of the lesser known Samba
