In dired files are sorted case sensitive. This does not make sense on an

listing in dired sorted case insensitive?

If you're on Windows, dired is using the Lisp emulation of `ls', that
is, ls-lisp.el. You can configure it to be case insensitive. My .emacs
has this:

(when (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
 (setq ls-lisp-emulation   'MS-Windows
       ls-lisp-dirs-first  t
       ls-lisp-ignore-case t
       ls-lisp-verbosity   (nconc (and (w32-using-nt) '(links)) '(uid))))
Thanks! Should not this be the default on w32?
