I wouldn't say this breaks security, nor is this due to the Guacamole
server running on Linux. The auth system of Guacamole is completely
independent of the server's OS.

There is no current option for this in Guacamole specifically, but if the
administrator of the systems involved were to decide "usernames are case
insensitive in my domain", that's a perfectly valid means of defining
identity. All that matters is that the systems that deal with that identity
are consistent in their definition.
