Bug Emacs 21.3: write-file downcasing

From: Dhruva Krishnamurthy
Subject: Bug Emacs 21.3: write-file downcasing
Date: Fri, 07 Feb 2003 11:08:06 +0530

 I am using the following GNU Emacs version from CVS.
Emacs version:
GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.0.2195) of 2003-02-05 on WOLFDEI
- When I use the command 'write-file', the filename becomes lowercase.
  After saving, the file along with the path is shown in lower case in
  the minibuffer.

(write-file "Dummy.cpp")
=> saved as "dummy.cpp".
Though Win is a case insensitive platform, it makes the file names no so
user freindly when everything is in lower case. This is more visible when
you have long names

This does not happen in the latest Pretest version:
GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.0.2195) of 2003-02-07 on WOLFDEI

Approx problem area:
(set-visited-file-name "Dummy.cpp")
In the file "files.el" and function 'set-visited-file-name', only for VMS
the downcasing is done. I do not know why this is happening.

Another minor problem:
In the DOTEMACS if you have,
(require 'cua)
(CUA-mode t)
(pc-selection-mode t)
The CTRL button just stops working. This is in the CVS version only and
not in Pretest version.
