You meant case-sensitively, I presume.

I don't understand what happened to the comment about *.JPG files on
case-sensitive filesystems, and how does this patch do TRT on
case-insensitive filesystems.

IOW, it sounds like the right solution cannot be so simple, because
this will most probably cause user complaints of the opposite kind.
No?

Btw, if the problem is only with COPYING.LIB, maybe a better
heuristics would be to remove .lib from completion-ignored-extensions,
as it is no longer so widespread where Emacs users dwell?
