That's a corner case.  While this could have been avoided for certain,
I don't think anyone ever considered a non-Unix host platform would be
used for cross-development for this library.  You should probably use
the Windows Posix extensions for that kind of work ;-) (which is a
nice example to demonstrate that it's not the file system itself that
is case-insensitive but rather the syscall layer applied on top of
