Doesn't the solution/workaround I proposed in

There's nothing strange here: package.el connects to the ELPA
repositories, so it initializes Winsock, after which the call to
system-name will returns the name of your system in its original
letter-case.  If you for some reason don't like the original proposal
I made back then, you could do in your .emacs something similar to
what package.el does: call some function that connects to some net
address (perhaps even localhost will do), then call system-name.  The
effect will be the same as the solution/workaround I proposed back
then, because all that's needed is to do something that forces Emacs
to initialize Winsock.  The underlying problem is that normally Emacs
calls system-name for the first time before Winsock is initialized, so
gethostname cannot yet be called.
