looks like Win2K explorer can sometimes decide to change the case of
what you enter ...
sending lowercase ... although I'm still looking into it it looks like
it could be that if you've been there before and it caches the path
then it sends lower case even though the first one was type uppercase
and it worked...

this is at a share level for a share shich doesn't exist and gets
passed to the default service as a %s, although I guess that won't be
the only case... looks like a 'hunt and rescue' path search will be
needed after all.
