Thanks for the diff.  It looks like FuzzyQueries are case sensitive by design
(c.f. http://jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=538312).  However, I am wondering if
Fuzzy Queries really ought to be case-sensitive.  They are supposed to be
'fuzzy' after all.
I think I'll apply your diff int he next few days, unless somebody disagrees
before that.

Now that I think about it, the same change should maybe be applied to Prefix and
Wildcard queries.  We still don't want those queries to go through the Analyzer
for the reasons indicated in the FAQ entry above, but a person searching for
Dogs* probably wants to see documents with dogs* terms as well.
