      Description

      It is possible to configure case sensitivity of a file system on Mac ( see http://lists.apple.com/archives/darwin-dev/2007/Apr/msg00036.html ), and it seems it is case-insensitive by default. Likewise, a mounted Samba-Drive is probably case-insensitive or a PC-NFS-mounted drive on a Windows system is probably case-sensitive.

      On UNIX, getattrlist can be used to find out about the case sensitivity,as the article suggest.
