ok. I give up. Whatever you want to do. I still think dropping
the cache entry is the wrong thing to do but I'll do a patch later.
Just help me understand why throwing away valid cache information
I think my confusion is that this is an internal caching
mechanism to me. What was the customer complaining about
and what in their environment specially *broke*. or were they
just confused by the output from wbinfo?
So why didn't we do a proper fix as you propose normalize the case?
Seems I'm not seeing the entire picture here.
