I believe the problem was more general, but I no longer have the bug
report that indicates this. If a user calls find-file on a
non-existent file with an upper case character anywhere in the
filename, then saves the buffer and uses compile-mode etc to jump to
some position within the buffer, previous to that change Emacs would
create a new buffer rather than using the existing one.

The report that Juanma sent dates back to Nov 2001. The change was
not installed then because the fix seemed too brute force for the
problem described. It was not until a year later when the above
behavior was reported that I installed the change.
