This has been fixed in r33240. Drive letters are converted internally to
lower case, the same goes for the server names in UNC paths. I've chosen
to not convert the share names, as I've read (somewhere on the internet
) that samba can be configured to treat those as case sensitive.

This has been fixed in r33236 by converting domain names internally to
lower case.

Both changes depend on a working copy format upgrade. We're doing one in
1.6 already, it just means we can't backport this to 1.5.x.

If you could test the new behavior to check if it fixes the issue you
reported that'd be appreciated.

thanks for the report.
