You didn't mention a win32 environment, which has case-insensitive paths. :(

No, the environment is not clean. The directory and all subdirectories
are still there. You need to do the UNIX equivalent of 'rm -rf' which
doesn't exist on a standard Windows XP or Vista install (for some
reason, Microsoft removed DELTREE.EXE from the utilities; boo!)

You're old enough to know that.

They are equivalent on win32-supported filesystems (and the win32 API
itself, I believe).
