Of course, it's called NTFS. You can use it in a case sensitive mode (POSIX
mode). But since I'm not a Windows user I don't know how to enable or use it.
All I know is that Explorer show the files correctly, but most tools can't
distinguish between case differing files.

So we're back to: Windows tools are all broken ;-) Okay not all, there's still
SubVersion ;-)
