There are two problems:

 1.- from "C:/file1" to "c:/file1"
 2.- from "/file1" to "c:/file1"

While trying to solve both, I proposed using an already existing
function: `untranslated-canonical-name'. That function does the
downcasing: (untranslated-canonical-name "/fILe1") => "c:/file1", but
that was, from the point of view of the bug fix, a side effect.

Anyway, we've had, AFAIK, just one report for the bug, and that was from
someone using 20.7; while the downcasing is obviously much more
troublesome. So reverting to the old behavior and fixing the bug in a
much less "brute force" way is IMO the best answer. :)
