Subject [PATCH] Case insensitive username matching for WIN32 and BS2000 (and OS2?)
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2007 13:15:00 GMT
Hi,

The usernames in WIN32 are, IIRC , case insensitive (and they are in
BS2000, and perhaps in OS2?).

Some of the username auth code uses tables, and thus case insensitive
matching, but at some places, user names are compared literally.

The appended patch tries to make these literal comparisons
case insensitive, too, by using strcasecmp() in place of strcmp().

Q: Should this also be #ifdef'd OS2?

Q: If applied, should the patch be backported to 2.2.x?

Cheers,

  Martin
