OK - So - this is a bug and needs to be fixed? You would think that an 
HTTP server as popular as Apache would be able to support case 
insensitive URLs. For that matter you would think that Linux should 
support case insensitive file systems. That's one of the areas where 
Windows is superior to Linux.

I may have to go back to my old trick of using Samba mounts to trick 
primitive applications like Apache into being case insensitive. As you 
can see - rolling eyes - that I thing this is very frustrating.
