Suggestion - Windows GUI Open File Dialog

PSPP 0.7.9 - pspp-079-20120315-32bits
OS - Windows 7 Pro (up to date)

The PSPP GUI Open File Dialog (Open ...) is Case Sensitive in the listing
order of folders and files.  This puts "pspp" (the windows standard install
folder suggested by GNU Installer) at the end of all installation folders in
"Program Files" which is not expected by the user. The file selection in the
dialog (which is its primary purpose) is of course also affected by this
ordering issue.

Two suggestions -
1. The default installation folder should be upper case "PSPP" for the
windows installation to match the normal naming conventions in windows.
(Regardless of 2.)
2. The file dialog should be case insensitive as far as the ordering of
files and folders is concerned since this is the behaviour expected by the
normal user.
