	.. or Windows.  It is Windows' fault and its non-working patch
to allow upper and lower case letters in file names.
	I ran into this before, and I think my solution was to use an editor
that would actually save the files with the right case in the name.
The one i use is PFE (programmer's file editor) available in any
site ( for instance).   But I am sure that any other
decent editor should be able to do that too.
	PFE also saves the files for me in Unix format (that is, regarding
the carriage return character vs. end of line character issue).
