This information is stored in the codepage_def.857 which defines
the lowercase/uppercase mapping for various codepages.  Hey, I
just noticed your name in it:

# Codepage definition file for IBM Code Page 857 - MS-DOS Latin 5

You should be able to patch this file, test it and post the patch
to fix your problem.

It is the SMB protocol that does not preserve the case of share
