It's hfs+ case-insensitive - and I am pretty sure that these tests
didn't XPASS when I was on 10.7 on this same machine...from mount:

/dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)

(note, no case-sensitive in the mount option.)

Right - that was my understanding; however, I'm *not* on a
case-sensitive FS and I don't think APR has figured out TRUENAME
support on OS X. Hence, why I'm suspecting that OS X 10.8 changed
something... -- justin
