Case sensitivity depends on how you have the 'case sensitive' option of
Samba configured....   the default is NO. I have both cases, but maybe
it is not necessary. And no - the option does not use regexp style
expressions - just ? and * wildcard characters.....  Look at 'veto
files' for the rules on these expressions....
