   I guess you mean the discussion started with

I do not know whether that was what Stefan was referring to, but if I
remember correctly, that thread was concerned with certain bugs
concerning case that occurred for hash tables and obarrays, but not
for lists.

The bug there was that completion-ignore-case was ignored for hash
tables and obarrays.  It concerned finding a match when there was
none and not finding one when there was one.  I did install a fix for
that problem.

I did not follow this thread in detail, but I believe that what you
are complaining about is the _case of the returned result_ if there is
a match and the search is case insensitive.  I do not believe that
there still are problems with finding out correctly whether or not
there is a match.  (Unless I misunderstood.)
