As far as NT and its filename-related APIs are concerned, "LEGOFLARK"
is the same name as "legoflark". Thus, if you submit a change on
client A that renames "LEGOFLARK" to "LegOfLark", you need to make
sure, when client B gets the change, that you do whatever is required
to make the name show up in the filesystem with the case changed.
Otherwise, if client B tries to submit a change based on what is, as
far as it's concerned, the same file (but with the old name), things
will get weird.

Does this clarify?
