My question is: how do you get Emacs to display directories like it
did back in the good old days of Emacs 20.7 (i.e. ignoring
case in the ordering of the files)?

Are you still using the same file system?

I am on Mac OS X. Its HFS+ is not case sensitive, i.e. AAA, AaA, aAa, etc. are all the same file. But, when it comes to display the file name, the case in which the name once was typed, is preserved. So I can see whether I then typed AAA, AaA, aAa, or aaa ...

Has your file system similar features?
